At the end of it, she was having such a hard time staying awake that when I finally crept in and laid her down, she simple looked at me through sleep-glazed eyes and then cuddled into her blanket. I guess the secret is letting her fight it as long as she can and letting exhaustion do the rest.
About two hours later she awoke hungry. I gave her a bottle and a-half...the extra was because she was still hungry and it stilled the wailing beast! She went back to the crib without opposition that time.
I was about out the door this morning when the school district called and asked if I knew they were on conference schedule today. I said no. She said, well, you don't need to be here until 9:45...She made my morning. I was able to go in a pick up the little princess when she awoke, and then witness the ecstatic Joy wiggle and grin when she saw her Mommy for the first time this morning...well, I am ok being chopped liver.
