Was it the Super Moon? Or the promise of popcorn and pirate booty?

Om my goodness, the bean slept through the night…twice!

On Saturday night (super moon night, when moon comes closest to our planet) Mrs Bean put her in bed, waited until she fell asleep and whenever she woke Mrs Bean would go in, pat her, assure her we were nearby, tell her that she needed to sleep in her bed, and give her kisses when she started to drowse again.  So – the night of May 5th, 2012, Kai stayed in her bed all night – waking some but getting out of bed after 5:30-ish to have her milk (in our bed).  As a reward we got her popcorn and pirate booty at the grocery store, told her she could have it because she was a big girl and stayed all night in her bed, and that we were soooo proud of her.

Sunday night, I put Kai to bed and patted her in her first wakeup.  She had another wakeup after we went to bed, but stayed in bed until 5:45, when she declared she wanted her milk.  After waking up post-milk (7:15?) she said she wanted popcorn and pirate booty for breakfast!

It will totally be worth popcorn and pirate booty if she will stay in bed all night…is this the light at the end of the tunnel?  Will she be able to sleep all night without our intervention soon?  Hopefully!!

Some night protests:
“I want Mama to sleep in bed with me!”
“I want to sleep in Mommy Mama’s bed!”
“Come here” (grabbing my neck and pulling me to her)
