So, the 1st night of OBBB (Operation Big Boy Bed) is about over.
WHAT WAS I THINKING?!?
Did I really type on this keyboard a mere (is that even a word?) 8 hours ago that I thought Adam would sleep through the night?!?
Well, he did... from 11 - 3. And then, then, all heck broke lose. He woke up promptly at 3AM, 4AM & 5AM. Each time he sounded terrified, crying for Mama. I would go in and he would ask for the "Airplane Song" and "Hold Mama's hand". After 15 minutes he would fall back asleep.
Then, at 5:30AM, he had a complete meltdown. Tried to sleep with Big Doggy but had thismuchroom to breathe so when I moved Big Doggy down a little, he lost it. Started crying "No Like It! No Like Big Boy Bed! No Like It! Chocolate Milk"! Yes, you read that correctly... he threw in a "chocolate milk" for good measure. Long story short, at this point he REFUSED to go back to BBB, and kept crying for Daddy. Up until then, I let Daddy sleep but I woke him up at 6AM to take over so I could get ready for work. He slept with Adam on the couch for 10 minutes and then transferred him to the BBB, while he was still asleep. I really hope he sleeps for a decent amount of time now. Poor child needs his sleep. And so do I. I don't know how I'm going to function at work today on virtually no sleep. Speaking of which, I have to leave in 5 minutes and I'm not even dressed yet. Gulp. Think of us tonight!!!
Oh, any anyone who's already been there with OBBB, please feel free to give advice, tips, etc. Thanks in advance! :o)
