I'm experimenting ... I'm guessing if what my gut feeling says is right.  So I'm experimenting.

Last night before Jonathan went to sleep, I told him.  "Sleep well.  Tomorrow you will be staying home.  We are not going anywhere.  Daddy is working."  No mention of the word "school".

He slept.  So did I (after days of disturbed sleep.  I was getting physically drained).  Not even bothering to get up to watch the semi-finals between the Netherlands and Uruguay (not that I really bothered at all ... haha).

Harith woke me up ask if I wanted to leave the computer on.  That was around 4am.  Groggily I got up, turned everything off, he helped me.  Went to the loo and I went back to sleep.

All these done while our prince was sleeping.  I didn't even want to change his diaper, fearing he will wake up and not go back to sleep!

But sleep he did.  At 6am I woke up to check on him and changed his diaper.  He woke up, looked around and after changing, went back to sleep.

Woke up at 10.30am.

It was good.  Now the gut feeling is almost confirmed.  But I still want to experiment just to be doubly sure.

Just one more night of good sleep and then I'll try it again.

I wonder if your experimenting has anything to do with the words school!! :-)
Good luck. So glad you had a good nights sleep and hope you did last night as well.

Yes! but I won't do it so soon. I just want to see if it was really about school that he had those waking hour days.

We did sleep well again last night. Thanks Rachel!
