Overall, I think I've done a pretty decent job. I like the early mornings and get a fair amount of work done when there aren't others around to raise distractions or problems or, even worse, call a meeting. And while there has been the occasional afternoon when I've really encouraged Celeste to take a nap so that I can grab 40 winks, too, I have had some great times with the little girl.
However, I think the varying wake times have taken a bit of a toll on me. So, starting in January, I'm shifting my work schedule again so that I can set the alarm clock to one time and then just leave it there. I'll be working three long days (10 hours) and two short days (6 hours) each week. I often work those sorts of hours, so I'm not concerned about the 10-hour day (11 hours when lunch is counted in), but I'll bet there will be some days that will seem even longer.

Like what I say means anything, but i think it will be better.
MC: I liked the 4 a.m. thing (I'm a morning person), but it definately took its toll ... the 6 a.m. start time should give me a bit of the best of both words -- some alone time in the office, early mornings, and my twice weekly afternoons with Celeste (and baby #2 in a few months) ...
