Scream--Chris Cornell

Tristan and I have a routine. About an hour to an hour and a half after every bottle, he takes a nap. He usually takes these in his cradle swing. Tyler is off work because he leaves for his annual Army training this week and he's messing up the routine.

Today, I put Tristan in the swing where he usually fusses for a few minutes and falls asleep and his daddy couldn't be quiet long enough for him to go to sleep. We don't keep a quiet house, but I don't holler through the house when he's trying to sleep either. Tristan finally started to drift off and Tyler opens the front door, light streaming in, and stands there trying to talk to me about cutting his hair for AT. I tell him we can talk later and go run (he was headed out to the park). When he leaves, Tristan screams his head off for half an hour!

I like my routine and so does Tristan. When his naps are interrupted, he takes forever to calm back down. Tyler needs to respect the routine and that I know what Tristan wants better than him.

Good luck trying to educate that Pappa. They don't understand routine or anything that resembles one.

I would suggest a day of role reversal....dad says at home and does all the things you do during the day and you go visit friends or something fun....
