Episode 6: “Sleep, please?”
First trip as a family to the the beach and Ava sleeps through it. Tye brings all these toys and has no one to play with while Melissa holds Ava and she sleeps, not even the dog will go fetch.
Baby Ava won’t sleep, wakes up screaming all throughout the night, keeping Tye and Melissa up tending to her. Melissa goes to coffee with her friend Alysa. Alysa suggests a sleep trainer. Only in LA do these exist right? Tye is on a mission to find a church in California, they are trying to find one they both like. Tye is more traditional and Melissa likes church that is more a theatrical event. Tye wants to go to church to worship and Melissa wants to socialize. They are going to try Melissa’s selection, the Oasis, one more time next week.
Sleep trainer arrives and gives them a step by step plan to get Ava to sleep throughout the night. They follow step one and put her in her crib and Ava goes nuts, hollering! Tye sticks to it, tells Melissa to go to bed and sits and watches Ava scream throughout the night. Next morning, he has no idea how Melissa deals with it each morning, mean while, Tye just lays on the floor and wants to sleep.
5 days later….the plan worked!! Ava sleeps which means everyone sleeps!!
