Today is the day

10 months, it's just 10 months.

Today C starts school. Her schedule be 6:00 am to 3:00 pm work, 6:00 pm to 11:00 pm school. The next 10 months are going to be hell. The only time I will even see her is Saturday evening and Sunday. Plus I get the supreme pleasure of waking her up each morning. Trust me that is NO easy task. Wish me luck!

Good Luck with that. You will live throuh it, I assure you. If I could live through 5 years of that you can make it 10 months. I'm not going to know what to do when she finally gets her masters in less than a month.
Hi I just popped in here from sassyfemmes blog. I'm enjoying what I've red so far and I'll be sure to come back again.

I know it might seem hard that you wont get to see C as much as your used to, but think of the good side of it, at least your face will be the first thing she will see in the morning when you wake her :-)
Zoe, I wouldn't make it 5 years. No way in hell. I bow down to you for making it through. BP is lucky.

Mad Hatter, welcome and thanks for stopping by. I'm glad you are enjoying yourself. Please come back anytime. Thank you for reminding me of the simple things. Now lets just hope she's as happy to see my face, after only 5 hours of sleep, as I am to see hers. Oh well, what's 10 months right. I love her and I will do the best I can to get through this time.
Hey 6-3 is my sweety's schedule. How about you put a phone next to C's head and when Mar wakes up she'll call to wake her up. Will that work?

What a lovely offer GDG but that really would be a wasted good deed for Mar. She does not wake up for anything. I've come home (when she worked nights) and her EXTREMELY loud cell phone would be right by her head with 10 missed calls and the alarm clock had been going off for 3 hours, non-stop.

Think she'll out grow it?

That's one hellish schedule. You could try cuddling her awake, she can't get grouchy when she's getting cuddled, can she?
Wow, that's quite a heavy sleeper! I remember watching one cartoon as a kid where the character had an alarm clock. The sound didn't wake him up, but the clock was rigged to his blanket so as the alarm was ringing, the spinning knob on the back would reel the blanket off him, and eventually start hitting him with it as it spun around. thwap-thwap-thwap. Would THAT work??

Sassy - I would definitely be risking bodily harm. Honestly it takes about 10 minutes AFTER sheis up and walking around for her to be fully awake. She sleep walks into consciousness.

GDG - Perhaps if the alarm clock could squirt water at her that would work. But it would have to have EXCELLENT evasion skills. Know where I can get one of those?
Hmm... something that could squirt water AND dodge the swats that would come afterwards... how about a little brother?
