So last night I was solo-parenting as I do a few nights every month. And usually it's fine because Dylan typically sleeps through the night. But last night I started bedtime at 7 and he wasn't down until 8:45 (way far outside normal). But then he woke up at 12:15 and I was up with him until 12:45. Again not a common occurrence, but happens sometimes. BUT THEN he woke up at 5!!! This has happened twice ever...all in the last two weeks. He typically gets up close to 8. I leave for work at 6:40 at the latest and I get up as late as possible because I hate mornings. But today I was up at 5.
The day went ok, but at 6 pm or so I hit my limit. I'm beat. Luckily Daddy's home tonight. But we still had to figure out a way to have Dylan not freak out that I wasn't putting him to bed. Usually I leave the house, but I was in no mood to sit and wait somewhere for an hour or so. We discussed me pretending to leave then sneaking back in through the garage. But we ended up with the truth. Mommy's going to bed, so say night night. He wasn't thrilled, but I think it made sense to him somehow.
He's not asleep yet, but I hope we both are within minutes. Wish us luck.
Oh shit I hear screaming.
