Sleepless In Smyrna

by Courtney Sirotin on August 9, 2012

If it seems like I haven’t posted much this week, that’s because my son has acquired the traits of a vampire and no longer abides by trivial human conventions, like sleep. Despite my earnest, earnest efforts to wear him out, I can’t seem to get him to sleep before 9 pm. I think I know why we’re on this schedule (morning activities have been pushing his naps back, which push his nights back), but it doesn’t make it any easier. I’m setting an alarm for 6 am tomorrow to *hopefully* reset his clock, but we’ll see if it does anything. We have morning activities planned for the next few days, too, so it might be futile.

So, tonight I am forced to sign off early in exchange for a moment’s reprieve before the night’s over. I shall be back in full force tomorrow night…Dylan willing.

Good luck,Courtney! Soon Dylan will probably start napping less and going to bed earlier!
