And this is the culprit!
His current wake up time. 5:30 am to 6:30 am. That’s EARLY people! Like REALLY early. Like to get 8 hours of sleep a person would have to go to bed at like 9:30pm And 6:30 would be a GOOD day.
Sure he’s cute….
But that’s EARLY!! So we have to keep him quiet (which is no small feat) until the other kids get up. Which is like 830 or 9. That’s when there is no school. Alden has to get up at 730am for school.
But still if Eli is up at 5:30 that is 2 hours to try and keep the kid quiet.
And he’s not quiet.

So by 11:15 he looks like this…….
(and it is also how I feel come 11:15)
But I have to keep him up until 1 so I can drop off Lucy at preschool. Which is always fun. And he is always happy during that time – NOT (I had an 80’s flashback when I typed that….)

I just don’t know what to do with him. Cause that is TOO early. He didn’t get the memo. Around here we sleep in. Like at LEAST 8.

He’s signing “all done” in these two and his hair is all spiky cause after he ate all he wanted he dumped his bowl of rice krispies onto his head and smeared it around. It was awesome.
I feel all done with this crazy early morning business!!
