The funny thing about him not being a morning person is 9 times out of 10 when it’s time for him to go to bed he protests. There used to be crying but for the most part now he just goes after voicing his dissatisfaction. Our response is always the same… “Baby, you know you’re going to be sleepy and cranky in the morning if you don’t get your rest.”
Fast forward to Monday morning. He again has expressed to us that we are NOT letting him get enough rest. Me and Hubby look at each other in disbelief. This little person acting as if it’s OUR fault that he’s tired in the morning. So the solution…we bump his bed time from 8:30 to 8:00. Of course this brought tears, complaints and his best attempt at bargaining the first night. He wakes the following morning with no crankiness; a little groggy but with tons of silliness. That’s a good sign. That night at bed time he was asleep in just a few short minutes with his head buried under his pillow like an Ostrich (Hubby's words..Lol).
I’m thinking moving the bed time was a good idea. We’ll have to continue to monitor it and see how it goes. It’s just funny to me that he’s so little and has a preference about what time he wakes in the morning. He’s so cute….I love that little guy.
