1. Denial

Was that a cry that I heard…nah. Must have dreamt it.

2. Anger

He better not be waking up now! He’s supposed to get up at 6:00 and it is ONLY 5:55! GO BACK TO SLEEP!

3. Bargaining

OK, if you just sleep another hour I’ll buy you a car for you 16th birthday.

4. Depression

I’m never getting to sleep again.

5. Acceptance

Fine, I’ll get up. No sense in fighting it anymore.

6. Realization

Wait! He hasn’t made any noise for a couple of minutes, I’m going back to sleep!

7. Regression back to 1.

Was that a cry that I heard…nah. Must have dreamt it.
