we are right in the middle of sleep training the twins who are now 2 months old and i'm not sure who cries more, me or them. never under estimate the healing power of a really good sob. i let my kids cry it out and sometimes i need to too. it's just so cathartic, like an emotional purge. a relief of tension really. my motto used to be 'big girls don't cry' but it's like joyce meyer says, 'eat the cookie, buy the shoes'. you have to let go sometimes. i just wish i could schedule mine in for when it was most socially appropriate and convenient!
