Toddlers bring change. And sleeplessness.

I made a face mask out of a bandana and two hair bands to wear at the store Wednesday morning.  Then I didn’t go to the store on Wednesday morning because someone woke up at 3am and was still wide awake at 5am when I tagged in.  He fell asleep a little before 6, but I couldn’t get him back into the crib, so the store plan went out the window, and I held him while he slept until 8:30ish.

On the one hand, yay for holding the sleeping baby!  I don’t get to do it much anymore, and it’s SO NICE.  On the other hand, I didn’t get much sleep after 3am…  On the third hand, we didn’t get a nap Wednesday, either, so BOO for that.

The new nap routine starts today (Thursday), and life is going to SUCK for a while.  The car is no longer reliable, and it was never a good long-term solution anyway.

    Yeah, those moments of sleeping babes in arms become fewer and fewer. I’d love to have some of those moments myself right now.

    Christine always chastises me for holding Lucy while she sleeps because we’re supposed to be “sleep-training” but I just practice selective hearing and do it anyway.

      The ideal baby is flexible – sleeps happily in your arms, sleeps happily in the crib, sleeps happily in the car, the stroller, the sidecar of a motorcycle, a cradle in a tree…
