And then on weekdays, I need to get up much earlier than he does in order to go train while our girls are asleep. If I use the alarm it wakes him up and he has a hard time falling back to sleep for that last couple of hours.
I don't know if it will help or not, but I just bought one of these retro light-up alarm clocks from L.L. Bean to try. Instead of ringing, the light flashes for the first five minutes. Since I'm more light-sensitive when sleeping than he is, maybe it will work. Or not. We'll see.
If this doesn't work, my next attempt will be to use the silent "vibrate" setting on my cell phone and set the alarm on the phone, and put it inside my pillowcase. Won't that be a rude awakening!?
How do the rest of you solve these divergent sleep schedule issues in your home?
