    I am so thankful for getting a good nights sleep after two nights of dealing with bats in our house. We’re pretty certain all of the bats are gone but pest control is still coming tomorrow to be sure.

  • I'm thankful I'm finally feeling better after COVID last week! I am excited to leave the house and see some family and friends!

    @mcmanda4321 I’m so glad you’re feeling better! I hope it wasn’t too bad for you.

    I’m thankful for my son finally sleeping through the night again! We started a rough patch all the way back in March and while he still needs a parent in his bed (my husband and I take turns), at least he seems to be falling asleep at a relatively normal time and not waking up until 7:30am. 

    His improved sleep is coordinating well with my increasing pregnancy fatigue so phew. I was really worried about how this would play out. Not out of the woods yet, but for now, things are good!

  • I'm thankful that I finally amassed a healthcare team I can trust after so many disappointments during the initial part of our infertility journey.

    @mcmanda4321 I’m so glad you’re feeling better. Cvid sucks in the first place but the isolation makes it so much worse. 

    @etnyah can you please teach my son how to sleep until 7:30. If he wakes up past 6 I count myself lucky! 

    @acleverusername a good healthcare team can do wonders for peace of mind. I’m glad you’ve found your people!

    @iiirene ha, maybe we can exchange tips! The reason he sleeps till 7:30 is because he often doesn’t fall asleep before 10pm. Despite starting bedtime routine at 7:30pm. It’s a trip.
