Only a few days after that last post on how Caleb is starting to sleep through the night, he started (again) to not be so.
Why does he wake? Just because.
Just because I made a little noise.
Just because Caitlin needs to go pee.
Just because I shifted in my bed.
Just because he shifted in his bed.
And he wails. Lucky for me HM is the one who wakes to sooth him back to sleep, with some effort too mind you.
So in that time, I am woken, Caitlin is woken. (HM’s work hours are a little flexible in that she doesn’t have to be in the office very early).
And we both suffer from lack of sleep the next day. I can cope with this with drug laced beverages, but feedback from Teacher Rachel is that Caitlin either dozes off in class, or is moody and thus teary I-wanna-go-home.
Thus, we (mainly I) have to decide for both of us what to trade-off in order to bring forward bedtime.
