4 A.M. – Really?
We had to get up early this morning. I set the alarm for a 5:00 am start thinking this would be plenty of time for us to get moving and some would say a slightly respectable hour. I would say maybe for triathletes, Olympic swimmers and swanky businesses men but not me.
Anyway, my little people, who are so excited about the day's adventures, had other ideas and thought 4:00 am would be a more appropriate hour. Needless to say, I am currently drinking a largish coffee watching the sunrise.
This 4:00 am encounter with the world has made me empathise with my sister whose 19-month-old darling has taken to waking at this time. Daily. For the last three months. She is also feeding a 12 week old baby at some point during the night. How is she surviving?
How did you manage patches like this as a new parent or a parent with toddlers? Have you got any survival tips for those in similar situations?
