We packed a ton in this weekend. After going to bed late last night, Little Guy was up at 5:30 AM, a full fifteen minutes earlier then the last time I complained about it which means we are on target for 5:15 waking shortly. We've tried everything, but he is usually wide awake just after sunrise. Short of dropping an enormous black cloth over the exterior of the house (which I've fantasized about), we seem to be stuck with the early waking during the summer.

Ah, but for a rainy morning. He might sleep past six.

But then we're stuck inside.


This morning I looked up the sunrise schedule to see exactly how much longer this will continue. By September we should be back on track. The difference in the schedule is just seconds a day, but somehow over the course of a few months it does shift. Creeps along really, but it does change - a much needed reminder that almost every situation is temporary.

Anyway, the longest day of the year was some time in mid-June, though if you ask me, I'd swear that it might be today.

You really checked the sunrise schedule? This is serious.
