4 A.M. – Really?

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.

4 A.M. – Really?

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?
