To Dream the Impossible Dream

It seems that I have achieved the impossible. It has happened. Ella took a nap ON HER OWN!!! If you know Ella, you know that sleeping isn't exactly "her thing" and going to sleep on her own has been, until now, unthinkable. But this afternoon Ella went to sleep by herself, a feat that is akin to scaling Everest. So congratulations to me. It may have taken 3 1/2 years plus infinite threats, promises, bribes and sometimes begging, but today Ella slept on her own. If I wasn't afraid that she'd wake up, I would go and take a picture to mark the historic occasion.
