the 'late show' with hadley

.
top ten reasons why hadley is unable to sleep (and our solutions):


10. "my teddy bear fell over" (teddy bear is placed in upright position);

9. "i don't want my blanket" (remove blanket);

8. "i want my blanket" (replace blanket);

7. "my foot doesn't work" (foot is usually touching her blanket - blanket is moved away from foot);

6. "my arm doesn't work" (bend arm to show that it still 'works');

5. "i have a hair in my mouth" (attempt to remove invisible hair until she announces that she has eaten it);

4. "i want the white bunny [or any other stuffed animal that hasn't been seen in MONTHS}" (search for elusive bunny);

3. "my foot is itchy" (suggest that she scratch her foot);

2. "my underwear is 'untonchable' {uncomfortable}" (underwear is changed); and


1. "this is an OLD teddy bear - i want a FRESH one" -

any suggestions?

Koby has never ever slept well. When he was an infant everyone told me he would sleep through the night by 6 months. When he was a year and a half waking 6 to 8 times a night they said by 2 he will sleep soundly....when he was 3 they said he will outgrow this when he starts pre-school and when he was 4 they said hmmmmm......he will probably sleep so soundly by the time he is a teenager!
Now at 5 years he seems to be down to waking 2 times a night. We have spoken to doctors, read books, shut doors, opened doors, slept with him , put in a bigger bed, back to a smaller bed, new mattress, new pillow, teddy bear, comfort blankie, water..............probably tried absolutely everything that we can think of. And yet every night at about 2 or 3 am and I hear.....MOM.....my heart still runs and we tuck back in and give kisses and I fall back into my bed. Until 5am when he comes into mine and stands above me breathing heavy and patting my hair while I sleep whispering to me shhhhhhh.......it is so bloody sweet how can I really get mad that I have a 5 year old who has probably slept through the night a total of 5 times in his entire life.
(Great to see you today! I am so excited to have the Mette products in Chick Pea and look forward to chatting soon. xo Sarah)
