[insert long boring whiny post about a child who refuses to sleep here]
(Because my child has suddenly decided that he needs no sleep nor does his mama. *weep*)
Instead, let's talk about Stupid Things I've Done Lately, as those are usually much more entertaining (at least to you).
A few days ago, I was driving home from the grocery store and stopped at a stop sign. And waited. And waited. And until a bike rider gave me a weird look, I didn't realize that this was a stop sign as opposed to a stop light, so waiting for it to turn green made no sense whatsoever.
Yesterday, after a spectacularly unsuccessful attempt at introducing a regular naptime, I decided to head to Target (SIDEBAR: I have a friend who doesn't like Target. Which is so weird because she is otherwise pretty normal! Hi Jamie! :) ). I wanted to buy a heavy curtain for Noah's room to make it as dark as possible for napping. There were some other things on my Target list as well, and because I am a bit of a type-A list-making personality, I added "curtains" to the list and magneted it back up onto the fridge so I could re-stock my diaper bag, change the baby, drink some water, and do all the millions of other things suddenly required before leaving the house.
As I walked into Target with a tired and slightly cranky Noah strapped to my chest in the sling (and happily drooling onto my chest), I realized that my Target list was safe on the fridge door. I knew I needed shoe laces. And... shoe laces. Hmmm. Shoe laces and... oh, right. Baskets for the changing table. But what was that other thing I needed? Hmmm. For the baby... what was it... Hmm. I couldn't for the life of myself remember what else I needed, and since they had no baskets that were the right size, I ended up walking out after about 45 minutes with nothing but shoelaces.
(Have you seen Anger Management? No? You should. There's a scene where Adam Sandler gets really angry but is trying to stay in control and he yells GREAT! with his teeth clenched... That about covers how I felt.)
More of these stories are sure to come, especially if Noah's successes with mission: sleep avoidance continue.
