Ok, so I thought I had figured out the sleep issues with Michael. I was so wrong! My good luck lasted for about a week, before it took a sudden dive. I'm sure that there will be plenty of people that say I am too lenient and never ever let your child sleep in bed with you. Unfortunately, I succumb to the need for sleep and Michael often ends up in bed with me and my husband. Maybe I should be more strict and just let him cry. Sometimes it works and other times it doesn't. I'm sure part of the reason it doesn't work is me. There is a part of me that loves to cuddle him with me, then there is another part of me that feels like I am doing him a huge disservice. If you ask my mom, she says "just let him sleep with you". One of my younger sisters slept with my parents for the longest time and she turned out ok. One of these days, Michael will learn to sleep through the night and we will all get some much needed rest. For now, I am ok with him in my bed, even if there are others that don't agree.
