Three Nights of Sleep!

We have just enjoyed three miraculous nights of sleep. On Thursday night, Quinn's grandma babysat and we went to a hotel after Thanksgiving dinner, literally just to sleep. On Friday night, Quinn gave us a post-Thanksgiving gift and slept through the night for the first time in many, many months. Last night, we took a mini-vacation to Napa while Quinn's grandpa babysat. (If you live locally, we can highly recommend the places where we stayed and dined.)

I feel like a different person now that I've finally had some rest. I honestly cannot remember the last time I felt so good. On sleep, life's challenges seem a lot less daunting. Exhaustion had made me forget myself. I really hope Quinn's ear tube surgery on Wednesday brings us all some much needed relief from our usually scheduled program of exhaustion.

We are so grateful to Quinn's grandparents for giving us this break!

I'm so excited for you! Sleep does make a huge difference. Grandparents are the best for that. =)
