Six on Sunday


ONE


The exhaustion is too much to bear. Jackson has had the worst sleep regression over the last couple months. I've been meaning to post a please send help on how to re-sleep train a toddler, but y'all I'm just.so.tired!

So, here's what I've got (1) he's been in our bed for going on longer than I want to admit a/k/a months. (2) one of us can lay with him to get him to go to bed in his room, but the moment he wakes up in the middle of the night and no mama or daddy next to him all hell breaks loose. (3) We cannot get him back in the bed for the life of us.

Tips? Mom advice? Spare bottles of wine?

Friday morning graced me with missing my wakeup call by an entire hour (ahem, I was asleep on the couch with the 2-year-old), a freezing cold shower topped off by driving off for work with my breakfast and cell phone on top of the car. It took me until about to the entrance of our neighborhood to realize something.was.missing!

As I made my three-point turn to *hopefully* rescue my phone I witnessed a huge work van drive right down my road. Cue freak out! To my great surprise my phone survived with merely a flesh wound. (if you get that reference, which should be read with a British accent, I love you)

Truth: I may have had this BBQ Bacon Pizza as more than one meal last week.

Last weekend I conducted my first initiation as the new member advisor for my sorority's local chapter. Seeing through initiation is the pinnacle of my advisory position. Last year, I had a prior commitment with the Inaugrual Ball so this was my first one! Holy cow, I have a ton of emotions to spill out onto the keyboard about that weekend! :)

Brandon's Christmas gift was tickets to the Jason Aldean concert which finally happened last night and it was so fun! This date night couldn't have come at a better time. Florida George Line opened the show and were ah-mazing - just as expected! I heard every favorite Jason Aldean song, drank a few beers, danced and had a good laugh while people watching.


It was refreshing for my tired self and a nice change of pace from the same old thing.

I love going to concerts with the Hubs!

This week finished She Reads Truth's Fresh Start series. Of the many series I've read with this community, I'm going to be quick to say this is a top. The scripture, the reflections, the way He moves through this series is something special. I've found myself seeking the scripture of this series for reference many times over the last weeks. 


I highly encourage you take a look at the Fresh Start series if you haven't already read along.  Click the image above or follow this link to find the start of the series. 

Happy Sunday, friends!

  2. Ugh, I am SO WITH YOU on the toddler sleep regression! Charlotte, my daughter, is almost 3, and for the past 2-3 months started sleeping terribly. Before that, she would go to sleep by 7 with little to no fuss and sleep until 6:30 the next morning. Now every night is a battle for her to get in the bed, and she has been waking up like crazy (sometimes every 3 hours), saying she needs a blanket or she's scared or she heard something that woke her up. It's been wearing us out! Finally in desperation last week I called my pediatrician and asked if there was ANYTHING we could do, and she said that we could try giving her some children's Benadryl every night for 10-14 days (!) about 30-45 minutes before bedtime to see if that helps. We started doing this last Tuesday, and while she still fights bedtime something fierce, she hasn't been waking up in the middle of the night anymore! I don't know how you'd feel about that or if you've already tried it, but it really has helped us. She is still not sleeping super late (wakes around 6), but I consider it a win for us. Now, if we could just help her realize bedtime is not evil, we'd be good! I hope you can get your issues resolved soon. I know it's so exhausting!
