Curse You Daylight Savings Time
I don’t get it. We lost an hour of sleep. Therefore Kaiden should have slept until at least 7:30 as he normally wakes up at 6:30. But no. This morning he woke up at 6:30 which would have technically been 5:30. So he lost an hour and then woke up an hour earlier. Woke hubby up at 7:30 and tagged him in as it’s his day to wake up with Kaiden. Back to bed for me.
I don’t know which is worse…
Kaiden was waking up multiple times a night since forever (we’re talking bed at 8:30-845, up at 11:30, 2:30ish, 5ish) but would sleep until 7-7:30 or even later.
The past few days he’s been sleeping well (I know I probably just jinxed it), going to bed around 8:45 and waking only once in the night (last night it was 4am), and then waking up at 6:30. It’s been between 6-6:30 every morning.
I got 8.5 hours of sleep total last night…6.5 in a row. It’s been so long since I’ve been able to do that. I went to bed at 9:30 lol
But now what?!? We are going to attempt to keep his nap at an hour today and see if that helps tonight. I don’t mind 7am but before that I’m not a happy camper.
It’s 7am and I’ve had a crazy day already….
Up at 5 to a huge puke-fest in Kaiden’s bed.
Took him to ER as he hasn’t kept anything (food or water) down since Sunday. He’s apparently not dehydrated so we will see how the next 24 hours go
Load of laundry in (have had to change Kaiden’s sheets a few times the past 2 days)
Oh and my alarm is going to go off soon to “wake up” and get ready for work
I’m in kindergarten again today…it’s going to be a loooooooong day.
Thank goodness for my amazing parents who I called and woke up at 6:30 so they could come watch Kaiden today. It’s a 45min drive from their place, which means they have to leave now.
Luckily I have an ECE with me today so she can do most of the teaching, and I have a double planning day which is always nice.
While about to nurse Kaiden tonight...
- Kaiden (hands around my boob): pumpkin
- Me: pumpkin? (Thinking I misheard/misunderstood)
- Kaiden: yeah pumpkin.
- Me: you think it looks like a pumpkin?
- Kaiden: (smiling) yeah! Pumpkin!
- I don't know how to take that....
A few things I never want to forget…
I’ve been meaning to write this for a while, but life has been pretty busy lately, and when we haven’t been busy, we’ve all been sick. So here it is.
Every time we watch a show we’ve downloaded, and the symbol shows up at the end (lions gate something or other), you put your hands up as if you’ve just scored or something. And the. You look at both daddy and I to make sure we are doing it too.
You are growing so quickly, you now push your stool over to the sink when it’s time to “brush teeth”. You get the toothbrush and toothpaste out and take off the lid. We squeeze the toothpaste on together and then add water. You brush up and down, back and forth and even “spit” into the sink. When you’re all done you happily give mommy a turn to help you, with a big “ahhhhh”. It makes things so much easier. Always in the same order.
If something happens (like an accidental trip or I knock something down) and I say “oops sorry buddy that was mom ya fault” you always say “no, Kaiden’s fault”. It’s cute. I correct you, but you always insist.
You apologize. A lot. A true Canadian lol.
You let mommy and daddy have a turn to watch a show after yours, and the second the credits come up, you ask if it’s Kaiden’s turn again.
You read to your Teddy, Elmo, and Pooh bear.
You love singing and randomly bust out your best songs, which right now consist of “hot cross buns”, the “itsy bitsy spider” and the ABCs.
You ham it up for the camera.
You love to “run fast” and be “so speedy”.
Lately you have really enjoyed shreddies or Cheerios with milk. It’s the only way you will have real milk.
You love soup.
Building towers and then “knock knock” them down with your hammer is a favourite right now, along with fixing up the car your aunt and uncle gave you for Christmas.
Your favourite books right are Nursery Rhymes, Disney Junior Sticker book, always your two hockey books, and your three little trucks, tractors and emergency vehicle books.
That’s all I can think of right now. I love you so much. You are absolutely amazing!!
Just had an amazingly big bowl of poutine with pulled pork. It was so good that by the time I thought of taking a picture of its beauty, it was gone.
I am so full now but it was totally worth it (even though I will probably gain a pound or two) lol
