The Legend of Lily

I learned a lesson about a year back.  I learned that it is not a good idea to celebrate your successes with sleep training by bragging about it on the internet.  In the comments of a post (which I apparently cannot find I freaking found it, yo!), a dear, adorable friend of mine birthed the Lily Legend (see Serifm's comment).  She mentioned that every time I talked about "The Universe" overhearing my bragging about how well my kid was doing, she imagined Lily Tomlin in her big chair.

"Lily" was born.

Lily has become a legend when we mothers whisper about our sleep successes.  When the sleeping falls apart, we are quick to pay due homage to Lily in the hopes that she will once again help our children to sleep blissfully through the night.

So imagine how stoked I am that Serifm and I are going to see Lily in the flesh tomorrow evening to celebrate a birthday.  Yaaaaaaaaay!!!!!  (and I hope my kid still sleeps when I get home!)

Just be super, duper NICE to Lily so she doesn't think you're being too full of yourself. You wouldn't want her to take you down a peg!
