It’s that time of year again. The time when we get an hour taken away and routines are thrown into a tailspin. Yep, Daylight Savings Time has reared it’s ugly head. Sure the whole falling back thing is great every fall, but springing ahead, that’s for the birds…or for those without children. This morning I’m feeling like this:
Yesterday started off well. We went to the zoo which was very exciting for Ella. Not so much for Anderson who had minimal viewing. He was more interested in chewing on his rattle anyway. I swore I’d never buy this stroller, but the one I really wanted I could not find for under $500. It worked just fine on our first use.
We enjoyed some yummy Greek food with my brother. Ella loved spending time with her Uncle Tom.
By the time we finally were able to get out of the restaurant, we headed home to hopefully get Ella down for a nap. Yeah, um, it was nearly 3pm when we arrived home and after 45 minutes of tantrums, Ella finally passed out like this in our bed.
Couldn’t blame her, I was exhausted too after a rough night with AJ. So I napped in her new big girl bed while Josh hung with Anderson. Oh my dear Anderson, I wish I could will you to sleep. When I woke up around 5pm, Ella was up and happily watching Mulan, a weekend treat. By the time we fed her dinner, it was already nearly 7. I went to put Anderson to bed and then the battle of bedtime began.
I’m going to say Ella won this one, because she was still talking in her room when I got in bed at 9:30. Of course as I doozed off, Anderson woke up. I swear he’s going through a growth spurt or maybe teething since he has been really enjoying biting me. Finally in bed a bit after 10, I was happy to end the day. Too bad I was up again at 12, 2, 3 and finally 4:45 am to get ready for work.
I’m dreading bedtime tonight already. On the bright side, it is going to be 70 degrees here today and it will be light out for more than a half hour after I get home from work. We may even make it to the park before dinner. I do love spring. There, ending on a positive note.
Happy Monday All.
