Haiku day 7

She's crying upstairs
I want to hold her right now
Wipe away her tears

We have very reluctantly began allowing Alice to cry herself to sleep at night. This decision was made after she woke up every 15 minutes one night. So far, it has worked nicely. She has been sleeping much longer stretches (2, 3, or 4 hours). Every time she cries, though, its all I can do to not run upstairs and hold her and kiss her and show her how much I love her. I know that if I do this, we'll all go back to not sleeping, but it is so hard to listen to her cry.
