The "Sleep All Night" Cupcakes

I was desperate earlier in the week. Desperate for sleep. The girls weren't sleeping well when we returned from Florida two weeks ago. Pretty standard after a return from vacation, I know. Teagan didn't take very long to get back into her routine. Quinn got worse. Much, much worse. I blogged about it earlier this week. Jenn was away on business for a few days as well, so I was doing nights alone.

We weren't really sure what was waking Quinn up, but I tried all of my natural treatments and finally tried Ad.vil. Nothing worked. We assumed that she was likely getting a molar. She would be up every hour, but didn't seem like she was in a lot of pain. She wanted hugs or wanted me to lie with her. I let her sleep with me for two nights, which meant that I really didn't any sleep because of the tossing and kicking.

Without a decent night of sleep in two weeks, I bribed them on Monday night. If they slept through the night, they'd get a special treat on Tuesday at lunchtime. Teagan slept. Quinn had a hellish night for the fifth night in a row, which left me as a zombie on Tuesday morning.

On Tuesday, after lunch, I brought out the "sleep all night" mini cupcakes. It was slightly heartbreaking to watch Q's face, while her sister happily housed her cupcake, but I had to stay true to my word.

I let the "sleep all night" cupcake bribe go all week…

Guess who finally got her "sleep all night" cupcake this morning with her eggs?!?


  1. Hey, when it comes to sleep, you gotta do what you gotta do! "Sleep All Night" cupcakes are BRILLIANT!!!

  2. Glad to hear things are getting back on track sleep-wise. Looks like that cupcake was delicious!
