night owls

Matt is a night owl by nature. I am an early bird. I used to think we were terribly ill-matched. In fact, when manifesting my perfect partner I specified that he be a morning person like me. I fantasized that we would sit in our sunshine-filled kitchen drinking coffee on the weekends listening to Cartalk on public radio. The Sunday New York Times, a poached egg and a walk in the neighborhood would be nice too. The fantasy was very clear and detailed.

And then along came Matt.. who will happily sleep until noon, who can’t stand the guys on Car Talk, will only eat his eggs scrambled and thinks walking is too slow and inefficient (he prefers the bicycle). Oh, and our kitchen is too small to actually sit in.

And now I see how lucky I am! I go to bed around 9:30pm and Matt watches the night owl baby (and feeds him with the bottle) until 3 or 4 AM. I take the morning shift and try to let Matt sleep as long as he can. This would never have seemed like a reasonable schedule until we had a baby but I am feeling very sane these days. The last time I left the oven on and almost burned down the house was weeks ago!

This is one benefit to both parents having jobs where they work from home and create their own schedule. All that said, we are hoping he will start sleeping through the night (or in blocks of time greater than 2 hours) soon… When does this happen people?!!

When my son Ben was about 4 years old, he took his very first swim lessons at the local YMCA. I didn’t realize until we arrived that I wouldn’t be inside the pool with him, so I watched from the window just outside. (Albeit a little nervous since he didn’t know how to...
