After much deliberation I have come to the conclusion that my little man has an internalized alarm clock! I just wish I knew how to reset the thing! For the last two weeks we have been battling the big boy bed! He actually really likes napping in it, and also going to bed in it....but come 2 o'clock in the morning his bed and the entire theory behind it turn into a monstrosity! First comes the scream "Mommy Daddy" and then the pounding of little feet across the hardwood and tada, there he is at the bedside! And I'm not kidding people...2 o'clock without fail! I'm half tempted to set up a hidden camera...I'm baffled! He'll grab my arm, pull me out of bed and have me lay down next to him in his bed until he falls back to sleep. Last night was a particularly awful experience. After about 45 minutes of intense crying, he finally calmed down and proceeded to lay there next to me with his eyes WIDE open for the next hour! I just keep praying that this whole new bed thing will work itself out soon! I figure we have 10 weeks to get it figured out! I don't think I could handle two waking kids every night...and as much as I do love Matthew...he's not the type to get up in the middle of the night. In fact, as I recall, he could sleep through Gage's frequent wakings for at least the first year of his life! It seems lately though he actually has had to shake me awake and let me know Gage was crying. Ah Motherhood! It sure does take it's toll! So here is to hoping for some uninterrupted sleep in the near future!
