It’s been a long week. Maybe the previous week of vacation threw off his internal clock or it’s just normal kid-growing-up stuff, but it’s been hard to get him to go to sleep at night and then he’s been waking every morning around three. Top that off with me being sick all week and nobody is very happy or well rested.
So last night, after we watched a movie and read a few books, I made a deal with him. Go to sleep and stay asleep all night and he could have the iPad the very first thing when he woke up at his normal time. I didn’t mention that this is what he normally does on Saturdays, but he was super excited and went straight to bed, stayed in bed, and slept all night. Coincidence? Maybe, but I’ll take it.
