Thankful Thursday – Sleep and all it brings

I really don’t want to jinx us, but it’s been a good week.

If you read along here, you might know that Poss has issues with sleeping. Falling asleep, staying asleep, the whole thing is fraught with issues.

This week, she started a new trial of melatonin and she is sleeping. It’s bliss. She has slept EVERY night for the past 5 nights, going down quickly and sleeping through. Ok, so she’s still in our bed most nights, but I determined to celebrate the successes. And even though I’ve been sick this week (both an ear infection and a sinus infection – bonus!), the extra sleep has made it liveable, bearable.

Not only is it good for us, it’s so, so good for her. She is happier, calmer, more settled. She came home with stickers from her teacher every day (even receiving one from the Principal) and a special note in her diary tonight, praising her on her concentration in class this week.

We could seriously not be prouder… I am seriously considering framing it. That would be a bit over the top, no?

So today I am linking up with Kate over at Kate Says Stuff for Thankful Thursday. I am thankful for sleep and all the good things it brings. Long may it continue.

  1. Yay Yay Yay!! And I would totally frame it 🙂

  2. Best ever!!!!! I find melatonin helps a lot with getting to sleep but sadly doesn’t help my little mate stay asleep. So I will remain jealous for now and know that ONE DAY it will happen 🙂

    • We had similar issues Kate and we have changed the Melatonin type, from tablet form to liquid. Has made such a difference! It might be worth having a chat with your paed to see if they can make any suggestions… although I am sure you will have exhausted all your options (pardon the pun!) xxx

  3. That is so good to hear!! x

  4. What a fantastic week! Yep, I would definitely be framing the note in her diary. It would be great to look at each day to remind Poss of how she should be so proud of herself and for you to smile 🙂
    Thrilled for you to hear that she’s been sleeping and hope you feel better quickly xx
