The twins listened to my advice! (Or we have a coincidence on our hands.) In any case, they slept right on through the night last night. I woke up because I had to pee, and looked at the clock before I got out of bed, figuring it was around 2:00 a.m. or so (when I often wake up). But no: it was 5:30 a.m. Yay!
Riley started chit-chatting at that point, but happily, so I just listened and dozed. I heard Maddie chime in, but then things got quiet again and were quiet when I got up to shower at 6:30 a.m. I ended up getting them up around 7:15 a.m.; at that point, Mads was awake, but the Ri-Man was still sleeping. Go, twins! We'll be having that same pep talk tonight before bed.
I was especially glad that they let me get an interrupted night's sleep last night because I stayed up too late catching up on a few things. I sent a number of way overdue e-mails (although I still owe a few, so if you're waiting to hear from me, don't despair: I'm working on the backlog), got some laundry done, and did a few other random little things around the house that had been bugging me. It was a good evening, and a very good night. Here's to more.
