Please Tell Me There Is A Solution
Right. So teenagers are going to suck. We know that. Do you know what else sucks? Waking up at 5:30 a.m. every day because your baby refuses to sleep any later. I need some advice here, peeps. Every morning around 5:23 a.m. I hear the whining which quickly escalates into crying. Today it escalated into full on screaming. See? Look...still dark outside.As I see it, here are my options: a) let him cry it out, which wakes up Becca and makes the rest of my day less than ideal due to the whining and crap because she woke up too early--I have tried this option and after about 45 minutes he goes back to sleep, but Becca and I do not; b) jump up and race in there to silence him before he wakes Becca. Either way, I'm up at 5:30 a.m. which is not acceptable to me. He goes to bed between 7:30 and 8:00 p.m. At his age Becca was sleeping 12 straight hours. Something has to be fixed here.
It is before daylight, even in the summer. That shit is too early. Now I will sit here and down coffee and click refresh over and over until one of you solves my problem for me. (I hope.)
