A Day in the Life:
Thursday, September 16, 2010
Bluebird: 6 years, Penguin: 4 years, Junebug: 2 years, Monkeyboy: 5 months
1:10 AM: I wake up because I "need" to feed Monkeyboy. (One of the uncomfortable truths of breastfeeding.) Unfortunately, Monkeyboy has decided to sleep through this feeding. I try to go back to sleep, which is difficult with engorged mammaries.
4:07 AM: Oh thank goodness, Monkeyboy starts waking up! I yank him out of his bassinet and settle him in to eat and I breathe a sigh of relief. I switch on some Nick at Nite and cringe to realize that "Home Improvement" is on...I watched that as a child, come on! While I'm deeply stewing over the fact that I might actually be getting old, I experience a surge of adrenaline when something moves under the blankets in my bed. It's Penguin.
4:50 AM: Monkeyboy is out. I climb back into my bed, cover up Penguin with a blanket and then roll over to get some shut-eye.
6:52 AM: I roll out of bed as quietly as possible so I can sneak in a shower before anyone else wakes up.
7:55 AM: Monkeyboy starts to stir. I'm working on making some toast for Junebug, so I leave him alone.
