I know that I'm going to be woken up really early, so why don't I go to bed earlier? *yawn*
Anyway, last night I set K's clock for 5am which I thought was quite optimistic but I'm only prepared to set a clock for pre-5am if we're going on holiday somewhere.
As expected at 4.30 K woke up. He climbed out of bed and stood at the door crying.
No problem. I
fell jumped out of bed, went into his room, showed him the clock, told him it was still night time, put him back into bed, tucked him in and left the room. As I walked out of the room he called out "Night".
Seriously? Is it as easy as just buying a clock?
5 minutes later, just as I was going back to sleep (it's always the way), I heard a thump (as he climbed out of bed) and then more crying at the door.
*sigh* I guess it isn't going to be that easy after all.
I went in again and repeated the same process - pointed out the clock and told him it was still night time, tucked him in and left the room.
Then he slept/stayed in bed until 5.15. Woo hoo. To those of you with children who sleep well this probably doesn't seem like a big deal, but it really is for us. Normally, once K's up for the day there's no getting him back to sleep, so the fact that he stayed in bed for at least another 30 minutes is a major victory.
I really hope this clock thing works. I'm so tired all the time, I have no patience at all (not that I ever had that much to begin with) and I'm always cranky.
