Sniffle


The eternal question - is it better to sleep longer at night, and have dinky naps during the day, or longer naps and shorter night shloofing? Heck if I know. Girlfriend just went and fell asleep in her bouncy chair as I was drawing her bath. Most of her naps today have been 45 minutes long (after that she can be coaxed to sleep a bit longer, but only with frequent pacifier top ups and soothings) - but then, she slept last night very well, from 1 to 8 AM, with just 20 minutes or so around 5:30 for breakfast.

Of course, it's not like I'm in control here or anything!

Shabbos got cooked, including chicken soup that we've already started eating cause we're sick, and banana cake that we've already started eating cause, um, um, we deserve it. Cooking while she napped was an adventure - clearly, I won't be stir frying anything until she's like 3 years old, because if I had to count on some uninterrupted time... well, you just can't count on it! As it is the banana cake batter sat unmixed for a bit too long, resulting in the occasional lump of salt in the cake - gets your attention!

This picture is from our attempts at taking a passportable picture of the chicklet on her changing pad on the backseat of the car. Of course.

Does it seem tou you that every time you go for a shower or to do something not SR related (like cook Shabbos) she just KNOWS and needs you Right Then? I myself was shocked when Jonathan's naptime lasted more than 15 minutes at a time and I could actually drink a warm cup of freshly brewed tea instead of iced cold two hours later - ah the luxuries of being a new mommy...

It's better to sleep at night.

Debbie - I think it just became a moot point, cause she just 'forgot' to go back to sleep after eating at 5:30!

Brenda - honey, you know it! But Yoni treats you well now, right? Right?!
