Too Tired to Sleep

For weeks, Westley was a crazy, cranky-ass mothersucker in the evenings. We assumed that he was too busy learning to crawl to sleep, that teething was hurting him, that he was just going through a cranky-ass phase. But apparently, he wasn't sleeping because he was tired.

Westley has been going to bed around 10:00 PM, which, it turns out, is really late. Like two and a half hours too late. Oops. I should have known this was a problem. He was waking up tired in the morning, for chrissakes. It also turns out that babies can get sleep-deprived too, which actually makes it harder for them to go to sleep at all. Oops.

Now he's in the process of getting caught up, and I'm praying he won't wake up wailing in the middle of the night, ready to party.

How would you know any different? If that is your biggest parenting oops, I'd say you are a fabulous parent.

It's the first of many "oopses," I'm sure.
