Ear Plugs and Sleep

I wore ear plugs last night. I only got up with Starbuck once. Once! WHEEE!!! She's been waking up at 1 and 4ish lately, ever since her ear infection. After talking to Mellie, who turned off her monitor and discovered that her son was capable of putting himself to sleep, I decided to put in ear plugs. And WOW!!!

I put Starbuck down for a nap while she was still awake--- something I've been working on with her. She hasn't adjusted as well as TPJ did at this age--- but it's working! She soothed herself to sleep this morning quicker than she ever has.

And now I'm drinking decaf unsweetened (but sweetened with sweetner) tea and trying to resist the lure of caffeine.... just a half a mt.dew would make my eyes pop open....

And life is ok. :)

OMG, I LOVE using ear plugs, especially when Brian gets up a couple of hours before me, but I'm always terrified of NOT hearing the kids so I don't "treat" myself to them too often. I don't even have kids that get up in the night....hmmm...what's wrong with me??

Thank you for reading! Mainly my blog consists of just me complaining about life in general, but so goes the life of a student I suppose. I really don't mind Blairsville too bad, but every so often I'll kind of freak out with the whole "GET ME OUT OF HERE" thing.

But as for ear plugs, I really regret not wearing them at all of the concerts I've been to. I'm quite hard of hearing, haha.
