The kiddos

I think I jinxed myself earlier. Tonight Decaf had a rough time going to bed. I gave her some medicine about 20 minutes before bed but not early enough. The kids share a room. She cried and wailed. Then Latte would scream at her and it just became a cycle of craziness! They are finally asleep!!!!
I'm trying a new trick in the morning. See, I'm a bit of a grouch in the morning. Umm...grouch could be putting it WAY too mildly. I tend to stay up too late then my mornings are rough. And for some reason God has given me a son that is a big-time early bird. I always feel so bad after I am grouchy with him. So tonight I got a juice cup ready and it's in the fridge, some cereal is in a bowl on the table (he doesn't always use milk) and I've told him about this and he should wake up and head to the kitchen instead of into my bed. We'll see how it goes. Knowing he's awake but not having to get out of bed right away should help me ease into my morning. I'll keep you posted. That's all for now! Goodnight!

I'm proud of you. Giving him a little independence. :) Can't wait to hear how it goes.

Don't feel bad! The days that mine can sleep in, don't, and the days they need to get up, I have to wake them! I used to do what you are trying and it worked, so I am hoping for the best!!
