I Used to be Better at This

I used to be better at this. 

 

I’m not sure if that’s really a good thing, but it’s the truth.

 

Erin used to travel a lot for work. Over the years I got used to it. But, since Michael’s birth, she hasn’t traveled as much.

 

Last night was the first time in a while that Michael and I were alone for the night. It went ok, but not as well as I had hoped.

 

Michael woke up at 9pm screaming. 

 

He woke up at 2am upset.

 

He woke up at 4am and fussed for a little while.

 

The dog also woke up at 4am and barked for 20 minutes.

 

Then Michael woke up again at 5am, so I brought him to bed.

 

I’m not sure what the source of his discomfort was, but it’s possible that he just wanted his mom.

 

Michael’s never been a very good sleeper, so I would be lying if I said this was outside of the norm for him. However, he has been sleeping much better than this over the last several months. I hope it’s not a new pattern for this week.

 

Here’s hoping tonight goes better.
