No Baby, No Cry

My 17 month old daughter is crying in her room right now. She has been very fussy the past week, cutting molars, sleeping poorly, and being more clingy than usual. Due to this whole dealio, I have decided to let her cry a bit upon waking up from her nap. I know, “good” moms don’t do this, or maybe they do, however, I am working with the hope that she may end up falling asleep. Maybe. Again. Most days she doesn’t go back to sleep, but sometimes it happens and then it is magical. I just can’t help it. I feel like she needs to sleep more than she sleeps and it is just so disappointing when we end up with just one 45 minute nap instead of a good, healthy 1 1/2 – 2 hour – I may just be one of those parents destined to raise bad sleepers. Ugh.
