Heeeey. I thought Charlotte’s spring had arrived. Guess I was wrong!
(I always blow the white flowers off these things when I see ‘em – but couldn’t because they were too icy!)
It’s clichéd to complain about baby sleep, but man – last night was rough. Henry is usually so good (thanks, sleep training!), but every now and then, it all goes out the window. Much like adults’ sleep, I guess. We had an epic screamfest from 10:30 to midnight plus a 4:00 AM wakeup. It’s such a horrible feeling, too – to know your baby is upset or in pain, and you can’t figure out why or how to make it better. It’s like… maybe it’s a tummy ache, maybe its a nightmare, maybe it’s teething, maybe he’s a secret agent sent to kill me via sleep deprivation.
All I can say is… thank goodness it happened on a Friday night.
Moments like that make me REALLY appreciate running. It was so nice to do something for myself this morning. Nothing like a blast of icy cold air to the face to wake a momma up!
And it was snowing. So much snow! I don’t think much of it will stick, but it was fun to watch the big, fat flakes fall from the sky as I did a 5K. I was multitasking and listening to NPR while exercising – it felt good to catch up on world events, too.
Anyone else run with lip balm in your pocket? I know some runners require lip balm year-around, but I only need it during really cold runs like today’s. Seriously – it’s a requirement akin to sneakers. My feet will not move without chapstick on my lips!
Maggie and James say hi. They are tired from last night, too.
Side note: I woke up this morning, and Maggie was spooning me from behind – like the big spoon. It was ridiculous (but also sweet and warm).
Have a great Saturday!
Maybe there was something in the air because I had a HORRIBLE night of sleep as well but I don’t have a screaming baby to blame, just myself. Actually it was probably the mug of hot chocolate and a delayed sugar-rush (?) to blame but it was awful. So awful I allowed my 7 mile run to scare the crap out of me and make me push it back to tomorrow. I’m kinda bummed about it, especially as I find myself getting frustrated with people today. Good for you for getting out there despite a poor nights sleep!
