So I had a great first 3 nights with the babes sleeping through the night. The 4th night Eva Rose woke at 4am and screamed for I don't remember how long at this point. Finally she went back to sleep and then got up at 6:15 like usual. Then, last night Michael woke at 2ish and didn't want to go back to sleep. I succumbed and got up and gave him milk. That didn't work so I brought him in bed with me. That quieted him down, but I didn't want him there for the rest of the night. I finally put him back in his crib and he cried, but finally fell back to sleep after not too long. Then not a couple of hours later, Eva Rose again woke screaming. I got up an d put a CD on in her room and fairly quickly she went back to sleep. Not great but at least she went back to sleep fairly quick. Tonight may be another horrible night. We went to the twin sale in Wakefield and really screwed up the schedule. I hope that this doesn't screw up the night, but if it does, I know that it is my fault for being so foolish to not follow the schedule. It's amazing what a schedule means to kids. I am thinking that I am going to be a little more scheduled with things. Mainly so dinner get done at a normal time. The little ones usually eat at a good time, but Tom and I don't and that usually means that we end up eating out. That needs to stop. I need to get dinner for Michael, Tom, and I on the schedule and hopefully that will help with keeping things on schedule and help with Tom and my weight issues. Maybe if we eat at normal time and eat at home vs eating out, we can start to lose weight, be a little healthier, and give Michael good habits!
Here's to a good schedule and a more controlled life. Life will still be crazy, but it will be crazy in a good away vs not so good way!
