Schedules Schmedules

So I had this looong post scheduled for today all about how Ollie is throwing my life a huge curve ball by not wanting to go along with any type of me-approved schedule. Wake up at 5:00 a.m. every day? Sure; why not?! Chuck and I have tried many, many things (later bedtime, earlier bedtime, no morning nap, etc.) but to no avail. It's been really hard on us, especially me since I'm with the boys the most and I LOVE schedules and routines...and waking up later than 6:00 a.m.

But you know what? Yesterday I had off (worked Monday from home instead). I decided to take the boys to Great Falls. After the morning run, I put Ollie down for his morning nap even though he wasn't acting that tired. Dangit Ollie--we gots us some things to do! Nap, baby, nap!  Of course the nap didn't take. But I wasn't going to let that stop me. We were going. And guess what? For the first time since he was an infant, Ollie fell asleep in the car. Miracle of miracles. The nap didn't last long because we soon arrived at the falls. But guess what? Ollie was okay! Rhett was okay! (The Canada geese wanting our food = NOT OKAY.) I survived a morning with a morning-nap-less child. (Be assured we were home for afternoon nap. That nap is non-negotiable.)

I think I'm going to be okay. Rhett thinks so too.

  1. with summer, i'm sure you'll LOVE not having a morning-napper. you'll be so much more free to get out early - and beat the heat.

    super cute boys - love the thumbs-up picture. and you looks super cute, too!

    hang in there. . . :)
