G: "He needs to learn to go to sleep on his own. He knows if he cries enough you (and he say it like its a dirty word) will pick him up."
Me: "Fine than I just won't get involved."
So while I was away G basically "Ferberized" Bubbie very successfully. Now he goes to bed, fusses once or twice and then he is down.
G - 1 Bubbie - 0 :^)
G: He needs to learn that he can't get into bed with us at 4:00 am, he must stay in his crib.
Me: But I am so tired, I can't take the noise.
G: You can't pick him up, you have to let him
It has been 5 days were G has successfully gotten Bubbie to stay in his crib all night.
So this morning at 4:00 am Bubbie started again. I went to the couch. G held strong for about an hour. After an hour G comes out in the living room holding a wide awake, sobbing 14 month old. Now we all have been awake since 4:00.
G- 1 Bubbie- 1 :^o
The worst part is that this is not my battle and I have to listen to it. I admit I would have totally caved after 5 minutes. I am tired and at 4:00 am. I still have 1 1/2 hours I can sleep, I 'll take it.
It will all be alright.
I am going away again and they can battle it out. When I get back there better be victor one way or the other.
Cause as the saying goes "when momma ain't happy, nobodies happy."
(And when momma pregnant she is TIRED!)
