Oy, Today.

You guys. I just have to take the opportunity to say that today is a nightmare.

Lots of stuff going on that I had under control but suddenly found out wasn’t in my control at all… but it’s now up to me to fix it. (Wow, that’s vague and confusing.)

And then Hula Girl is tired and cranky and… three. For those of you without children, here’s an FYI- “terrible twos” are a flipping walk in the park when compared with the “curious threes.” Ever read a Curious George book? That monkey is three. Except somehow everyone always thinks his bad choices are cute in the end. Scratch that from reality. No one thinks those choices are cute, nor do they produce an “Aww”-worthy ending. Ever. Just sayin’.

To top it all off, I am finally giving in to the fact that my son is not a big sleeper. Yes, it has taken me 11 months to admit it. The cause? HE SKIPPED HIS MORNING NAP. Hula Girl NEVER skipped her morning nap. She didn’t even skip her afternoon nap until she was like 15 months old, and then I just stuck with it and she kept napping twice daily until 18 months old. I have never ever in a million years imagined that my second child would ever skip a nap like that. The average age for dropping to 1 nap (in the Babywise community, anyway) is 15-21 months. I was hoping for at least 15 months with him… but he rarely sleeps full naps twice daily anyway. He just needs less sleep. And that is just NOT cool.

Ramble ramble grumble grumble. Today stinks.

    I hear ya. I hope it has helped the tiniest of bits to announce that it is a nightmare. šŸ™‚

      Speaking of nightmares, today started with one- I dreamed Jonathan, Hula Girl, and I were waking through a flooded neighborhood filled with tigers, rhinos, and hippos. We had to scale fences, walk through flooded canals (where a hippo’s bristly cheek touched my hand, which was how we knew we needed to scale the fences), and avoid being impaled. Nice, huh?

        Wow! I mean, wow. It’s interesting about the sensory details you remembered. So today you are scaling the fence of no-napness and walking through the floods of curious mischief and attempting to avoid impaling yourself on the spikes of despair and exhaustion?
