Thankful Day 6

Thankful for clocks.

They tell you how many times you get up in the middle of the night to feed your almost 3 month old baby, as well as your almost 4 year old son who says he had a nightmare and wants to climb in bed with you.

I just got Bug his own clock for his room. Put dark tape over the second hand digital numbers so that only the hour is showing, and posted a list that says the following:

1 = Stay in bed.
2 = Stay in bed.
3 = Stay in bed.
4 = Stay in bed.
5 = Stay in bed.
6 = Stay in bed.
7 = Can come out!

Here is hoping that it helps him not to get up at 5am thinking it is time to watch TV!

LOL! He is smart enough to understand that. What a neat idea.
As for your multiple nighttime feedings....I am right there w/you!
I will be up in a couple hours, and couple hrs after that, and that.

Good idea! Remind me of this in a year or so when they're not in cribs and I'm pulling my hair out! *L*

We did the same thing with my 4 year old. Except didn't cover the other numbers. And it was 6 that she had to wait till. With the time change that's even a struggle and some days it's not even 6. Sheesh.

I love the clock idea! I am also grateful for the internet (your other post). Blogging is such a wonderful thing. I also love having any information at my fingertips, and it is so easy to stay up on our finances and stay connected with people.
