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.
