I like this and it is so true. I will have to try to remember it when things seem so out of control.

HBM- I'm so sorry to hear of the sleep issues you are having. I really don't have any advice unfortunately. My DD was horrible with sleep, did a lot of the same things as your little one. I had to try to give into it and just let it be what it was. I hate to say it, but... they grow out of it. It doesn't help with the present though
So I got pissed at my co-worker yesterday. I was telling him about my race this weekend and how I came in only 9 seconds after my GF. He said that he didn't believe that and she must have been "shuffling her feet" just to make me feel better. He also said that she must have been doing that because she has been running for years and I've only been running a month. I was so angry. I told him that first of all, my GF would never just let someone win or anything like that just so they feel good about themselves. Secondly, I have been INTENSELY training for MONTHS and have improved by leaps and bounds. And thirdly, I'd like to see him get out there and compete in a 2 hour event. I was so completely offended by his comments.
Training related (TR): Yesterday I did some speedwork on my bike and will be doing so again today. I WILL be faster on my bike this next race! I also will be doing a short fast run during my HP class today which will be nice. I was running so slow after my race, my legs felt like a ton of bricks!
I have to bring my laptop into the shop today. It is all messed up. Programs won't load or shut down correctly. Computer is running slow. I don't have it under any warranty any longer, which sucks, but oh well. They say they are usually done with a computer within 36 hours and I have a $5 off coupon, so hopefully it won't take long or too much money.
Off to start my day! Have a great one everyone!
