Grand Central Station

Last night, Raphaela was essentially awake and raring to go from around midnight.  Today I had a constant stream of people in and out of the house, not counting the baby sitter and my scheduled patients.  My cleaner came and had to work around the electricians installing the illegal connection into the apartment below.  A colleague came by with a draft of a contract for me to examine. 

I am functioning on very little sleep and food, and Raphaela G-d willing returns full time to Gan next week.

Bless my friend Rachael, who anticipated that Raphaela would be stir crazy after a week of detention inside, and brought over a new toy.  That Fisher Price play house kept my daughter busy all afternoon.

I myself could not be more grateful for the weekend, which will be kicked off tomorrow on my Hebrew birthday, at the End of the Year Gan party.

I'm not sure how you're dealing with R's sleep, but it sounds like you just need to firmly tell her it's not time to get up and leave her in her crib. If you act like it's time to get up at midnight or even 4 am, she'll continue to get up at those times. She might cry a little, but she has to understand when wake up time is.

Also, not sure what her nap schedule is, but you might need to shorten or cut out the nap altogether to get her to sleep all night.
