Morning Schedule Update





My morning schedule is not going the way that I'd hoped. I just can't find the strength to wake up early. That is the main thing that I've wanted to accomplish with my morning routine, and I just haven't done it.

I know that my day would go a lot smoother if I would just wake up earlier than the kids. But, it's sooooo hard!!! My 4 month old likes to stay up late, and she usually goes down for the night around 11-11:30 p.m. I've tried to keep her awake more throughout the day, but she goes to sleep around 7pm and sleeps until around 9. Then she stays up until 11:30ish or so. And, it drives me crazy!!! I'm working on getting her to sleep earlier, like at least around 10 p.m. each night.

Then, on top of that, I go to bed late trying to finish up things that I need to do. Like, last night, I went to bed at 3 a.m. trying to finish some freelance work that I needed to get done. If I would just wake up early, I could tackle most of my work during that time, and feel so accomplished.

But, that rarely happens. I'm not going to give up, though. I will keep trying to keep princess up in the evening, so she can go to sleep earlier, and I will try to go to sleep at least by 11p.m. My goal is to start each day around 6 or 6:30. 6 would be ideal. Let's hope that I can do it!!!

My little one is just the opposite. Some evenings we are trying to keep her awake until 6:00pm. She wakes up early but I find that works well for us as long as it's not TOO early (like 3am which she as done before).

Hope you have a great week!

Hi, this is off topic and I would rather have emailed you but I cant, so here it goes. I followed your Brown Mommies link and I was wondering if you had visited it recently. Please take a look and see if thats something that you want linked to your blog.

I am only too aware how we can link to something one day and days later, its something different! Anyway, just wanted to make you aware.

God Bless!

Thank you, Mrs. Franklin. However, all I saw was a list of blogs that are written by mothers of color. What did you see?

Actually its the "brown mommies blog" that is on that page. Go down about midway. I clicked the link thinking it was what it said it was but its about deviant s*x practices etc. Not sure if the original link got hijacked or not. I went there thinking it was a part of your wholesome link at the bottom of your blog.

Ok. I checked it out. I just removed the link. Thank you, Mrs. Franklin.

FYI, my almost 18 month year old sleeps LESS at night the LESS he sleeps during the day. If he doesn't get 2 solid naps during the day, he wakes up more at night. And if he misses his afternoon nap, he wakes up in the late evening (10 pm) or in the middle of the night.

It took me a long time to figure this out. I thought, like you, that I should try to KEEP HIM UP so he would sleep better at night.

Just a thought. Give it a try.
