Today I am thankful for my kids' sleep schedule.
We have finally (knock on wood) made it to a point where everybody sleeps through the night. Unless someone is sick or teething, we are getting uninterrupted sleep.
Sleep is one of those things in life that you take for granted before you have kids. But oh man, after babies, it is a much sought after treasure!! Since we had our four children so close in age, except for a brief few months between kids #3 and #4, we have not had a good night's sleep in 6 years!!
But now, we have seen the light...or actually we see the inside of our eyelids ;) Our kids all go to bed between 6:30 and 7:00, and don't wake up until 6 or 6:30. I swear we don't medicate them, either!
This schedule gives Phil and I some quality time together each night, and although the mornings are early, Phil and the boys have to get out the door for school by 7 am anyway. So it works perfect for us, and I am extremely grateful for it!
