I'm sitting here typing this all up and listening to my three year old son who is still up and it's midnight and he's singing!  He's at this stage where he is falling asleep around 5 PM and there's nothing I can do to wake him up or keep him awake.  So, he'll sleep for 3 hours and then he's up all night!  He's my fourth child, so you would think I had this all figured out by now.  I've tried giving him earlier naps and he won't take them...but he needs them.  I'm open to any advice you all might send my way on this topic.  Help!  :)

Aside from that, it's time to sign up for my Photoshop classes again and I'm so excited!  We have so much fun and learn so much in the classes.  I'm very excited to announce that I'm adding another new class for June!  The new class is an advanced Photoshop CS3 class that will cover some things you can only do in CS3! 

class_CS3super_thumb_LRG You can sign up here!  Classes start next week!
I'm also planning on adding an Illustrator class for July!

And I always thought I was the only one with that problem :) My son is 2.5 and very often, he's still up at midnight. Sometimes he sleeps at 8pm and wakes up at 3am! Sorry no solutions for you but you're not alone :)

Sleep problems are no fun, except hearing them sing is sweet. What time is he getting up in the am? Maybe he needs to get up earlier so he will nap earlier in the day? My guys just turned three and are up by 730 usually and napping at about 2:30ish, maybe 2 until 4ish. Then bed at about 830-9 ish.

Thanks for the great template, love the tropical look of it!

My only solution is to try to retrain him by NOT letting him take a nap in the daytime, and keep him up until 7 or 8 PM. You will probably have to deal with a very tired and cranky lil' guy for a few days, but they say it takes several days to make something a permanent habit. It's harder on you than on him.
Thank you so much for the wonderful template Andrea. :)

My Little Ironies

  • My daughter lost her glasses in the snow on the way home from school in January. Someone found them in March and turned them into the school office! Amazingly enough, the school remembered we lost them in January. Wow!
  • Just when I think he knows better, my 10 year old son plugs the bathroom sink and the emergency drain in the sink basin to soak his grow creature, turns on the water, and forgets about it until we notice water flooding out from under the bathroom door! And yes, he locked the door so no one would bother the grow creature!!
  • It's time for another worn out pair of the hubby's pants to disappear! Aren't kids suppose to be the only ones who are attached to clothing?
  • My 4 year old says she needs "peace and quite"!!!!!
