Good morning,

I feel for you, TwoCubs. My Justin's still very weepy and waking up over an hour early. No big tantrums though. I wish he could tell me what's wrong.

Good morning, guys.

Wife and I are both sick with head colds so I decided to try an experiment with regards to sleeping arrangements. I'm approaching the issue with Justin's early mornings with the premise that I am part of the problem. I know that even on the best of days I snore and that he is a light sleeper. So I turned off the TV around 11:30pm & opted to sleep on the couch with the baby monitor on.

Long story short, he didn't get up until 5:45 which was just a couple of minutes after my wife left for work and the paper carrier came by. By then I had come upstairs to our bedroom with the other monitor on. I laid in bed with the lights off and he quietly got out of bed, came out of his room and peeked in. Then he closed the door and quietly wandered downstairs.

I slipped out if bed and sat at the top of the steps and just listened. He was still quiet and stayed that way for I'd say probably 10 minutes before he heard me at the top of the top of the steps and came to investigate. I said nothing to him and made not other sound than to blow my nose. Eventually, he came back upstairs and went back in his room. He's been in there quietly ever since. No fuss, hopefully no muss.

The idea is that maybe I need to ease up on him. He still bears watching but my thinking is that he's smarter than we give him credit for and that a lot of his disruptive behaviors area just reactions to our own behavior. I just get the feeling that he clues in our anxiety and it bothers him. I notice that he acts out of frustration when pushed or denied when working with the therapist and wondered if it was just the stress caused by being pushed around or led around or whatever.

We'll see. So far, still no thumps or bumps up there as I sit directly below his bedroom. It's almost time to start the day.

Excellent, Kwak. That sounds promising.

Good morning, guys. We had a couple real estate agents over yesterday to look at the house and give us some ideas on listing. Looks like the roof will need to be replaced before closing one way or another. You definitely want to interview multiple agents for something like this. Anyway, fairly good news. Now I just have to see about getting this roof replaced. We had been meaning to do it since we moved in, but you know, we were DINKs and didn't know what money we had.

Oh well, the high is supposed to be 77, so I'm going to try and enjoy the day.
