Here is little J at 3:45, eating mac n cheese and watching ‘The Lion King.’ He woke at 2:00a ready for the day. Dad snuggled with him for a while, but to no avail. I attempted to keep things low key in the living room until he started jumping on me on the couch and I realized I wasn’t going to sleep at all while he watched his movie — I turned on the lights and we played trains. Then I got hungry, so I fed him a little something, too. It’s about 4:20 now, I just put him back in bed to see if he’d sleep a few hours before morning. At the moment, he’s banging his feet against the wall. Outlook: grim.
Tomorrow, during the daylight, we begin the arduous task of keeping the little guy awake. Maybe we’ll try coffee… ?? 😉
