If you have a child who sleeps, take a moment right now to thank your lucky stars or your vengeful father-god or dancing goat deity or light a bit of incense to gaia or just revel in well-rested, over-accomplishing sanctimony as you sip a glass of wine that is not tinged with the bitter taste of resentment and rage while your cherubic angel dreams away in its bed of heavenly flowers and glittery faerie poo.

We had one glorious phase where said child slept 12 hours at night. It lasted maybe 9 months. Now, at almost ten, she is her father's child and struggles with falling asleep, despite how tired she may be. All my tricks that work on me have been worn out and yet there she is, awake at 10:45.

We're getting better at communicating though. She asked to tell me all her nervous fears one night this week before a school play (she was Julia Jellybean in the dental health awareness show) and once she'd said them out loud, we examined them a little and then she went to bed and finally got to sleep and it was glorious. Until she woke up at 6:40 and was pretty much ready to go to school.
