Sleepy

It’s the word I use to describe myself most often. The fact that I’m a night owl doesn’t help matters. No matter how tired I am all day I get a second wind in the evening that doesn’t let up no matter how hard I try. Today was a particularly drowsy day for me. I fell asleep on the couch while Diego jumped in his bouncing chair. I must’ve dozed for about thirty minutes or so. I had Nick Jr. on in the background and I think I pretty much missed an entire episode of Max and Ruby. 

Diego only glances at the television occasionally but I like the background noise, the exposure Diego gets to English, and I actually enjoy some of what comes on. Max and Ruby, Team Umizoomi, and the Bubble Guppies are my favorites.

My cat nap was nothing short of unsatisfying and after being awoken by Diego’s complaints that he was ready to move onto other things we returned upstairs where I set up our play area on the floor. Because the floor is carpeted it serves as a softer landing spot should he topple over. I also lay a comforter out to further cushion his fall as well as provide a clean surface for us to play and even nap. 

I put him down for his first nap at around eleven or so, maybe a little earlier. He only slept for forty minutes which only allowed me some time to relax and gather my wits for a bit. We then joined Ustream and broadcast our happy selves for a while before trying for nap number two a little after two o’clock. This time the nap took and we both slept for two hours! I really needed that nap. I didn’t even notice I was on the floor. Diego slept for a little longer than me and woke up refreshed and happy. 

When the third member of our party arrived home I was treated to some Cold Stone. It was delicious. I wish I had taken a picture to share here but I was in the moment and gobbled it up before I remembered I even had a blog.

The three of us are spending the day together tomorrow so I hope to be able to rest. Now that Diego is mobile he’s an even bigger handful and even though it’s fun and I love it I need some rest so I can keep up with him.
