We make our way downstairs....its now 5:15. Groggy, eyes half open and a body that is just going with the flow, I venture to change the diaper of supergirl....the amazing wonder who doesn't need sleep, who tackles the world and everything around her one cry at a time. She looks at me with her spell-binding eyes and contagious smile and it all makes it worthwhile and I forget for that moment that its only 5:15...well almost!
The day has began. One child awake one child asleep.........two children awake let the games begin!
Ideas how to make my little one sleep longer in the morning:
- Controlled singing: Will try to let her fuss a little longer in the morning. Past experience with this - not too good.
- Purchase black out blinds: Not sure if this will make a difference, but worth a shot
- Push bedtime later by 15 minutes for experimental purposes
- Push naptime by 15 minutes for experimental purposes
