As I lay in bed at 5:45 this morning, and as Christine was getting ready for work, Aizay began yelling angrily for release from his mattressey cage. Of course, 5:45 is not a civilized hour, so I let him yell for 45 minutes. That's right, people, 45 minutes. I'm not ashamed...kid's gotta learn some time that we're not gonna just leap to his aid whenever he's bored. Plus, for the previous two nights he kept us up with his unreasoning caterwauling. I was not in the mood. And if any of you are proponents of attachment parenting, or some other paradigm that causes you to rush to your child the minute he or she makes an unhappy sound...well, good luck with all that.
Ahem. Anyway, as you may already have guessed, this strategy worked not at all, and finally at around 6:20 we got up. I put Aizay in his highchair and began fixing coffee...at which time he promptly fell asleep. *Sigh*
