Phase Four - Gwen acting like a human being for the rest of the day - complete.
Phase Five, going to bed at 7pm - complete.
Final Phase, Gwen sleeping past 6:30am for the love of all that is holy - FAIL.
6:19am when I heard her
melodious voice irritated fussing from down the hall. Sigh.
I guess the next step is to keep her up a bit later at night. I don't know if we'll actually go there quite yet . Given that I'm starting work in only a few weeks, and that it wouldn't be so terrible for her to be up at 6:30am on those days, we might not want to mess things around too much. On the other hand, daycare is only three days a week, and that leaves four days when we could conceivably be sleeping until at least 7am. Decisions, decisions.
In any case, I think it's time for Chris to start getting up in the mornings once in a while. It'll be his responsibility to take care of Gwen on daycare days, while I head off to work. And there's no magical reason why he should get to stay in bed till 8am while I haul my tired self up to start the day.
