What's the other side of the coin you ask? Picture a grown man weeping with a new born crying at the top of his lungs and a toddler screaming for CANDY! Not to mention added to the din are three very whiny cats and two very noisy chickens. Yes chickens, baby ones that are growing wayyy too fast.
I am hoping we adjust soon. A couple of weeks ago we initiated Operation: torture CJ by keeping him up after five pm. This was to hopefully change his schedule so he sleeps at night instead of all day long. It went so-so. We didn't always make it till 9. Usually 8, or sometimes 8:30. It did seem to make for a slightly better night. It back-fired on us one night though because though we had kept him up he still stayed up all night long. But no. He is not sleeping through the night. I think the next person that asks me that may be in trouble. I have a hard time not shooting them my: what are you stupid? look. And I'm tempted to say: no, but my two-year-old finally is so thanks for asking. He does sleep for good three, sometimes almost four hour chunks though, so at least that is something. And despite just waking up a couple of times he will mostly sleep through so we are certainly very close.
Over the last few weeks we have finally solidified a nice solid bed-time routine for Kaiya which seems to be doing wonders. Of course I heard everyone saying put her on a schedule but one thing after another would come up and we never got it done. All I can say is this is the best idea since sliced bread! (Was that an idea? Maybe it was an accident?)
