What a difference 11 hours of sleep make…

I know what you’re thinking: How did you get 11 hours of sleep?? 🙂 I only got 7.5 hours of sleep (although it was heavenly after the 4-5 I’ve been getting). Mr. Fynn slept from 8 PM (when he finally passed out) last night to 7 AM this morning. For the last couple weeks, he has been getting up at 4:30 or 5:00 in the morning. Now, I wouldn’t mind the early wake-up call if he was wide awake and pleasant to be around, but he was waking up tired because he didn’t get enough sleep and would walk around the house whining very loudly, rubbing his eyes, and crying when ANYTHING, and I mean ANYTHING would not go his way. For example, he melted down into a puddle of sadness yesterday when he couldn’t get the rings on his toy to work correctly. Whew. That was a long day.

We decided to try the blackout curtains this weekend. Sunday, he woke up at 6:30 and today he woke up at 7:00. He seems to be in a MUCH better mood today. Actually smiling and laughing and playing. All good things.

We’ll see if the good fortune lasts. 🙂

    I’m so glad that worked! Beth has been cranky the last couple of days because she’s refusing to go to sleep at night. Staying up until 9 or 10 pm. And then we get her up at the same 6:30 we always do! Today was really bad. 🙁

    Hope this trend continues for you. Sleep is a girl’s best friend.
