I'm thankful for... coffee!
About six months ago I started having caffeine again. While pregnant and breastfeeding I decided not to have caffeine (I am still breastfeeding, but so little that I figure it won't bother Finley) and after a seven year break my body was not used to it. Every time I'd drink coffee I'd get seriously shaky, especially if I hadn't had much to eat. Well, I think I'm finally past the shaky stage and I'm enjoying my coffee. Especially with these early morning wake ups.
I asked my facebook friends for suggestions on how to get Finley to sleep in longer (if you have any, I'd love to hear them!), so I did a little combo of what was suggested- I've been putting her to bed about 30 minutes early and letting her be awake and even fuss in her bed a little while to teach her that it isn't time to wake up. It's worked and this morning she didn't wake up until 6:45!
I used to love the Fall time change and, of course, the extra hour of sleep (don't forget to set your clocks back tonight!), but as a mom, I despise them. I'm afraid that this sleep training stuff will go down the drain and I'll be waking up even earlier tomorrow morning. I might have a 4 am wake up call tomorrow. Anyone want to meet for coffee in the morning?
How do you feel about the time changes?
