City Bus

Carter has been waking up in the middle of the night EVERY NIGHT! For the past week and a half 2 or 3 times at night. I just don't know what to do. He gets up having to go to the bathroom, or because he is hungry, or he can't put his blanket on (which we have taught him and he can do it himself he just wants an excuse to wake up). We are so frustrated. I get up in the morning so exhausted and Dave already can't sleep. Do you wonder yet why I titled this post "city bus". Because Carter likes buses. Every time we see a bus, "that's a city bus" or "that's a school bus".

A friend of mine told me that to get her little boy to go #2 on the toilet she told him that she would take him for a ride on a city bus. That is where I got my idea to take Carter for a ride on a bus AS SOON AS he can sleep the whole night 4 nights in a row.

Thursday was the first night = success
Friday night= success
Saturday night= tonight so I don't know yet
Sunday= tomorrow 2 nights left hopefully he doesn't blow it

So far so good. It is working like a charm. If tonight goes well then we will be going on a city bus on Monday. I am actually excited too I have not been on a city bus either.

This is the first year that I have actually thought about goal, written them out and am conscious about them most everyday. It feels good. To actually have something to work towards.

All of my goals are focused all year long. So when October comes I am still working towards them.

I am still struggling at one of them, journal writing. My goal is to write once a week. Um, this is the first time I have done any sort of journaling (I do count blogging as writing in a journal). I need some time in my week where I can stop watching Grey's Anatomy or Revenge or Bachelor to write in my journal. Any suggestions on a good time to remember each week. I tried Sundays, but since I have to wake up at 6am when Carter is taking his nap on Sundays I do the same.
