Sleep Issues

Eversince V was born, Z has been having sleep issues. He uses to sleep through the night, especially after we sleep-trained him post Chicago.

Normal wakeup time used to be 6-645 am. Nowadays, not only does he wake up way before that, but he also has difficulty falling asleep on his own and requires our help.

Also, being sick for the last week or so didn’t help either. It has been a very rough time with both kids’ sleep. It’s amazing how she’ll wake up when he wakes up even if she can’t hear him through her noisemaker. It’s so exhausting, especially since this is supposed to be M’s holiday break.

Today, Z woke up at 3:50 am crying out for me. After unsuccessful attempts with M, I went in and managed to have him lie down and stay down for 20 min. Our worst fear was about to come true once the clock hits 5 am, that is it for sleep. I overheard him arguing and insisting on going downstairs. I had to go to V because she was fussing.

By the time I came back from her room, it was quiet in his room. I’m praying he’s asleep on the couch with M. Otherwise, its going to be a long day with a tired cranky toddler.

Looks like we have to sleep train him again next week. This has got to end.

Finger-licking good

Over So Soon

Christmas and Hanukkah are over. It’s amazing how quickly retailers will display Valentine’s Day merchandise as soon as Dec 25th passes.

The other night, M and I dismantled and packed away our tree and the ornaments. This is the first time we packed away holiday stuff so quickly. 2 Halloween’s ago, we weren’t so prompt. Some of the bats and mice cutouts stayed up for another year.

We told Zander that we don’t eat gelt after Hanukkah, hoping that he won’t ask for it again till next year.
