Reading back over my last several posts I can see how they seem to be full of complaints about the Boogie not sleeping. To be honest, some of them are complaints. Some of them are for myself, for when I have another kid who is almost two and having the same sleep issues. Since this is my journal I want to be able to look back and say, "Oh yeah -- see? The Boogie did the same thing. We survived." :)
I am so thankful for our Boogie. I know that there are so many children out there with real health issues. I know that I should not complain at all because in the first place, I have a Boogie. I was able to conceive and bear a child of my own, with an uncomplicated labor and delivery. Our Boogie is healthy. When she is well we do all sleep through the night. I don't have to set my alarm and get up multiple times to check on her or administer medication. She is a happy girl. She is developing and learning and growing just like she's supposed to be.
I don't want to be a complainer. It's easy to lose sight of the good things when something not so fun is having to be dealt with. The joy I derive from just having my sweet little girl around far outweighs the inconvenience of getting up with her during the night. I just want to make sure you all know that. :) Thank you for bearing with me and my complaints!
