Sleep is relative.

I know the secret to parenting. Don't say anything good. As soon as you get something down, and talk about it, the good reverses itself.

Last week, I mentioned to my friend Ami that the sleep deprivation wasn't that bad. Ever since then Maddie has been having trouble sleeping at night. We're trying to get her night time schedule set because last week she randomly started staying up until 9:30-10 every night. So we're trying to get her back to a normal bedtime of 7:30. Now Maddie is falling asleep at 7:30 or so but waking up at 10, and basically every 20 minutes thereafter for 2 hours or so. Then she'll sleep until 3, and then she'll do it again, waking up every 20 minutes until she wakes up for real at 6:30 or 7.


Clearly, I'm doing something wrong here. Suggestions??
