For the record

First, don't you dare say anything positive or optimistic or encouraging about the statement to follow. The only appropriate responses are things such as "duly noted" and "how interesting" and "thank you for informing me." I am dead serious about this, and you deviate from these instructions at your peril.


Mia has slept through the night, in her own crib, 5 out of the past 6 nights.

That is all.

Comments (64)

do tell

Why, you don't say. Hm.

did you give her benadryl or something?


very interesting.

you don't say? how interesting...

How interesting. Duly noted, thank you for informing me.

Thanks for letting me know. :)

[Yay!](Oops that slipped out)

Really? That's so grea... I mean thanks for the information.

Interesting. Thanks for sharing.

Glad to know it.

Is it a sign that you watch too much "Office" when Jacqueline's comment makes you think, "That's what he said".


Good to know! :)

Got it!!

I don't mention a no-hitter in the 8th inning either.

Good to know. I appreciate the information...

Duly noted.

Hey, look! Over there! Something shiny!

How informative!

duly noted.

we don't want to jinx this.

Thank you for the information. I'll get back to you with my response ;o)

That's wonderf....I mean Ahem! that's been duly noted, thank you for informing me.

Good to know.

Well, who would have thought it!

You don't say? Huh.

I see...........

For the love of god...KNOCK ON SOME WOOD woman!

hmm. Well, I'll be!

Noted for the record.

I call bullshit

It must be that little flask of sweet delicious rum that you slid under her pillow 5 nights ago.


Duly noted.

Thanks for sharing that.

I see.

hmmmm you don't say?

This is the kind of information that keeps me coming back.

We are having similar results at our place.

It's all rather interesting--thanks for keeping us posted.

This is a fascinating development. Fascinating. I hope there will be more to report in the future.

Duly Noted!

Oh, really?

Message received!

Thank you for the information.

I'll take it under advisement.

Duly noted, Baldy.

Well, isn't that all very interesting?

Perhaps she is worn out from all that jumping? :)

You on the other hand are losing hair and btw how did that dizzy thing come out?

Good to know.

Really? Duly noted, thank you for informing me. How interesting.

Hmmm. That does happen sometimes, I hear. I mean, it mostly happens around here these days. But then, I still live my life thinking it'll never happen again.

Some day, that part of my brain that worries about that kind of stuff will get filled up with other crap. For now, it's the panic of trying to get enough sleep to not kill anyone.

Oh wait, I totally deviated from the allowed responses.

Forgive me?

and your point would be what, exactly?

Big deal. So did my husband. :)

Well, it had to happen before she left for college, right?


Hmm I have taken the data and I am processing it. Early returns show that it has a positive meaning however the final analysis will be given to you in written form in 7-10 business days.

Thank you.

I don't think there's anything one could say about that anyway. I'll just say nothing.

That is interesting. Now I'm going to pretend that I didn't hear it, you didn't say it nor did you even think it because if you thought it - if you so much as THOUGHT it - she'll know. Oh yes. She'll know. And she will show you who's boss again.


Filed away for future reference.

I've added it to my calendar. Thanks.

Have you checked her pulse?

Noted. Interesting turn of events.

Does this mean the quality of your sleep deprived entries will change?

I see.

Thanks for the update.

Have a great weekend!

Thank you for duly informing me of this interesting information.

Oh, really? More tea, my dear?

All I know is stuff like this makes for a very happy family.

(My little brother called me last night asking for "how to get our 2 year old to sleep through the night" advice. Funny that he thinks I know anything about that. Poor kid. He sounded DESPERATE!)
