Daily routine

I consider ourselves so blessed that my hubby and I both get to work from home. We even get to choose when and how much we work. We manage a manufactured home park and live on site. It’s a blessing and a curse, but I’ll save that for another post soon. I consider myself a stay at home mom. We don’t seem to have much of a routine. The closest thing I can think of to having a routine is working off my eight month old’s sleep/nap/bottle/eat thing he does each day. We are up between 7-8am andhave a bottle than breakfast. Naptime is around 11am for an hour or so and wake up for more food and bottle. Second nap comes (usually) around 3pm following more food and drink. And ending with another bottle and a snuggle before the seemingly never ending bedtime battle. I should have some more daily things planned, especially something for my three year old. What sort of routine do you have with your kid? Do you follow it strict or however the day comes along?

Just had to brag..

My almost 9 month old son slept through the night in his crib two nights in a row. I figured, “wow! This was easy!”, so I bragged to my mom about how my precious baby is growing up. Then last night comes…. he went to bed with a little fight. Then was awake at 1am, 2am, 3am for an hour!!!!!! Then again at 5am and I caved and brought him into bed with me. I’m exhausted. 

I just had to vacuum the whole living room after I found my 9 month old with a mouth full of flamin hot cheetos!!! Thanks hubby šŸ˜‰

Crib training is drainingĀ 

Who out there jumped on the crib training band wagon WAY TOO LATE like I did? My daughter co slept until her second birthday. Parenting is easier with just one baby. But with a three year old AND a baby, I needed sleep. I tried to hop on the “let him cry it out for a bit but ultimately let him fall asleep happy”.  The last two nights he has been in his crib all night, rather than being pulled into bed with me in the wee hours of the morning. Night before last, I think he woke up four times but took a binky and fell back asleep. Last night he was only up once, but today I feel exhausted as I was when I was worried about co sleeping all night. I napped during baby’s second nap today. Please tell me I’m not the only one!! Did you co sleep or crib train (or both!)?
