True mommy confession Thursday

So my confession this week...I turn off the monitor at night so that I do not have to listen to my daughter "cry it out." Our bedroom is on the first floor and the kids sleep on the 2nd floor so if I turn the monitor off, I can sleep through the night without any interruption. She is almost 10 months old so there really is no need to be waking at night...right!?

Haha - I do the same thing! My little girl is almost 9 months, and she can SURELY sleep through the night! I love the Confession Thursday! I was doing Confession Wednesdays for a while! My confession goes along with your first confession. I live in a townhome community, and we do not have our own driveway. Sometimes, I load my girly into the car, only to find that I forgot something in the house. So I lock the car and run in as fast as I can, hoping that no one can see me out their windows and call CYF (ironically, I used to WORK for CYF!)

Love your blog - I found it on the Chester County Mommy Bloggers Google Group, which I am also apart of!

I never even took the monitor out of the box, so don't feel so bad.

Don't feel bad at all! We did the same thing. She only wakes up to see us. Plus, we became much worse parents during the day since we were getting NO sleep at night!

Isn't it amazing how different you are with your second child? We stopped using the monitor at night too! I would have NEVER shut that thing off on Ryan. LOL

Kara is still going through a "I want and need ONLY mommy" all day every day...so I've taken back my nights. She adjusted and now we are both happy. :)

I say that is perfectly fine and normal! Elebelly was on the lower level of our condo when she was 1st born and there were times where I'd lower the monitor or turn it off...we left our bedroom door to the upstairs open so I knew I could still hear her. You've got Nick up there with her so big bro would definitely hear her if she needed something and he'd come down to get you.
