Glory! Glory! GLORY!

The little nugget that is my daughter has recently taken a liking to a 1130 bedtime. Yes, you read that right, my 19 month old daughter refuses to shut her eyes before 1130. As you can imagine that leaves me frustrated and, most importantly, E.X.H.A.U.S.T.E.D.

Roo has been a night owl for many months now. While all of her play date buddies are out like lights at 830, my child is still wound very tightly at that time.

Normally, Roo stays up with us until 1000pm, where she then crashes and snores until 900am the next morning. I'm cool with this because I've become a night owl along with her and as a result of this, enjoy sleeping in with her.

I can handle 1000pm, 1130pm, not so much. That extra hour and a half makes a mean and cranky mom.

But last night she passed out at 800pm. I was in such shock that I didn't know what to do with myself. I literally say in the bed and just stared at her while she slept. I was thinking she'd pop up at any moment and yell, "FOOLED YOU!" and laugh at me.

But she didn't... thankfully.

Maybe it was the time change. It had her internal clock all screwed up. If so, I plan to take advantage of this glorious opportunity and shot for another 800pm bedtime.

Wish me luck.

Good luck! It's lights out for my boy at 8pm, 8:30 at the latest. But then again he's up at 7 am, each.and.every.morning.
