It's 5 a.m oh jeez..yes a.m. and I am lying in bed being serenaded to the wake up cry of Madison. Maybe if I stop breathing she won't know I am awake and fall back asleep.....fat chance! Oh oh I hear silence. I curl back into the troughs of my comfortable, cozy body cave. Just as I am about to fall into the land of dreams, I hear it again... the concert has resumed, guess those 15 minutes were just an intermission, Madison resumes her concert and delivers her best performance yet. I come to the realization that sleep just isn't in the cards for me now or for the foreseeable future.
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:
I have come to the realization and acceptance that Madison might just be a really early riser. But I am still looking for ways to promote longer sleeps. If anyone has any advice I would love to hear it. For right now...wish me luck!
