I'd like to proclaim this the Day of New Life.

I've dreamed of this moment...while awake...for 9 years now.

Countless tears, weary tantrums,
outbursts of desperation, are all but naught.

I'd like to proudly announce
to the world and all its counterparts,
I am officially sleeping
through the night.

Let it ring from the rooftops,
screams of jubilation
from every sleep deprived
grumpy face across the globe!

It is the most joy.

Thank you.

Your time will come. Hold on to the light.

Are you just trying to REALLY convince me that I should not ever THINK ABOUT HAVING ANYMORE.

Oh, yes, the whole night of sleep...it is such a beautiful thing...don't want to give it up.

And, I really think that you still need another one....just so that you can really appreciate the sleep thing a little more... ha ha

Oh, happy day, I mean night!!! Do you just feel like a totally new person? Can you finally make it through the day without any melt downs(you, not the children) because you are SO tired? What's it like? I will have to celebrate for you... mmm...ice cream! =)
