No rest for the weary

Yes, we are home. Back where we should be on East End Avenue in our lovely 1.5 bedroom apartment. The only problem is that Phoebe's body may be here, but her sleep schedule is still in Vietnam. She was such a good sleeper there. She took cat naps during the day and slept a good 7-8 hours at night. She made it easy on her poor new mom. Now she is wide away at 4am looking at me like I'm the crazy one. Last night we watched election returns from 22 States as I told her about what a unusual election this will be. For the first time ever, a woman, like her and a minority, like her will be the Democratic nominee for President of the United States. Phoebe doesn't know yet that the 22nd Amendment prohibits her from becoming president because she was not born here, but Secretary of State or Supreme Court Justice is not out of the question :)

The great new is, that some day, after she figures out to how to sleep when it's dark out, she can be whatever she wants to be, and that's pretty cool. And maybe someday, her Mom will get a good nights sleep again too.

It takes a little less than a week for Eliza to adjust her time clock after we've returned from a trip abroad. The time difference was a little less severe in our case but it usually took about 4 nights. Maybe it'll take Phoebe six or so but if she's a good sleeper, she'll still be a good sleeper once she adjusts to her new home, etc. Also, even though Eliza has always been a great sleeper, she goes through phases where she's up several times a night and right as I'm about to lose my mind she's back to snoozing again with no answers as to what caused the disturbance.

She is too cute for words, even if she doesn't want to sleep! xoxo Kerianne
