Is it really that bad if I let him cry it out?

All I want is to sleep in my own bed without breaking my back. I got him to fall asleep, but as soon as I put him in his bed, the stupid TV woke him up and now, even though he's super sleepy, he won't go back down. I'm super frustrated right now...

I tried, but it just made me more frustrated. Finally got him to sleep, though.

Finally got a job. Jack in the Box. Not much, but it's something. I'm divorced but in a new, better relationship and he's my new son's father. I'm very happy to have him in my life (my ex is a free loader, currently living out of his car).
