Why I have been gone.

So Little Man has started to wake every night between 3 and 4. I like to call it the witching hour because I turn into a slight witch. Why? Because he is staying up until 6 or 7 am. This was going on for a whole week. Last Friday I took him to the doctor to make sure he wasn't sick with a ear infection. The doctor couldn't find anything wrong with the tike. I know he is teething but really it has gotten out of control. My husband and I were giving into him for anything he wanted at night. We thought sure if we rock you, then you will sleep. Nope. After rocking he needed to go potty,eat,rock some more, sing songs and then start it all over again. He was walking all over us. My husband and I came up with a game plan and started it last night. LM was NOT happy. We didn't give him anything. We sat on his bed and told him to come lay down with us. LM screamed for about 1 1/2. Then he finally gave in and got in bed with me. By 5:30 I heard his deep breathing and knew he had fallen asleep. I rushed back to my bed thinking he would sleep in for me....7 am he was up. Normally 7 would be very normal for me and him to wake up but not when he has kept me up all night.

I hope to be back to blogging more again, I am just exhausted!!!
Potty training is completely paying off! He has maybe one pee accident a day if that. And He has pooped on the potty for me twice now!!! I am sooo proud and happy for the both of us!

I'm glad you found something that works! My typically developing 3 year old has always been more challenging in these ways than my Special Needs daughter.

Check out the Super Nanny techniques when you get the chance - you might need a back up plan because kids change tactics often!
