Late Night

Santa Monica Spin #3 - Santa Monica Pier, California, originally uploaded by PatrickSmithPhotography

Natalie has stayed up late for the past two nights. She is not fussy, or angry, she just refuses to sleep. Trying to get her to fall asleep when she's like this is quite stressful (as depicted in my comic).

The first night I was able to eventually get her to sleep, but after nearly two hours last night Jenna had to step in and work her magic. I had a quick soak in the tub to relieve the tension. When she finally quieted down it was time for me to go to bed.

I will be so glad when I can tuck her in, say goodnight, and close the door until the next morning! That is a milestone I am eagerly awaiting. But we'll probably have another baby by then. Oh well. I'll see my wife again after the kids leave for college.

awesome comic - but wait, 10:00 pm is a late night for you these days?? hahahahaha, quite a life, is it not? ;)
ps. matthew finally found a trick for loli (he was staying up until 3 or 4 with the crazy girl) - turns out she LOVES the guitar! so he can tuck her in and flaco at the same time, play for 15 minutes with the lights off, and they both fall asleep. no weeping to be held or anything. SO nice. you are always taking up new things - i say try out the ukulele or something :)
