Last night, Drake did NOT want to go to sleep! I laid him down a half-dozen times and within a few minutes or less he’d be back wide awake. At 11 p.m., Floyd comes upstairs after just getting home from a softball game. I passed Drake off to him to take over. I knew it would be tough on me this morning because I had to be in early for a special work assignment. So I finally fell asleep sometime around 11:30 p.m., and then I got up at 5:45 a.m. (admittedly after hitting the snooze a couple times!) to get in my workout and have time to get both Drake & I ready for the day. Of course, we ended up running behind schedule since I slept in a bit, and I was all alone after 7:30 since Floyd went out to play tennis with a friend.
This hectic, tiresome morning reminded me of my first day back to work at KWWL after maternity leave. I didn’t get to sleep until about 2:30 a.m. because Drake was just fighting his sleep so hard. So I went back to work for the first time on about 3 or 4 hours of sleep. ROUGH!
So, my dear son, how do you somehow instinctively know how to throw a wrench in your sleep schedule when it happens to be a day when I need to be up earlier than usual? It is probably just a random coincidence…but crazy and certainly tiresome!
I’m left to just hope for a smooth sailing day so I can get home and relax at some point!
