“If you told me a month ago that we would be sleeping through the night, I would have told you that you were insane.”
Our lives are completely changed.
Mila actually said the other day, “I used to be scared when I went to sleep in my bed but I’m not scared anymore!” Mila is a very, very, very strong willed little girl and she has gone through a massive transformation. She used to be scared of going to bed because of wolves or other animals she thought would get her. She doesn’t have those fears anymore!
When you’re in the thick of it and your kid is so scared, you can’t see the light at the end of the tunnel. You can’t see how this could possibly work. It feels like it could go on forever. You think your kid is too smart for this program or sure it could work for other children but not yours. For Mila, all of a sudden it just clicked. The first night she slept through, we weren’t sure if it was a fluke and we held our breath. But then it just kept getting easier and easier.
You just have to trust the process.
