Monday: Awake about 5:30am, little one up before 7am, with her for half an hour, breakfast, standard school. Home by 4pm, shortly after they got home (outing included getting impressions of hands and feet). A bit of play (valentine's day box from grandma arrived early) then standard snooze. After 90 minutes, went to deal with shower clog. After 6pm things get interesting; people from Anne-Lise's work and arthritis society calling, creating issues with dinner (after 6:30pm) and bath. Only get to story and bed at 7:15pm, asleep with an assist for 8pm. Then two other incidents; I go downstairs before 9:30pm. Then briefly upstairs before 10pm for cries.
Tuesday: Awake before 5am, so usual six hours. Some review work, with Alexandra after 6:45am for over a half hour. Standard school, then at the end of the day they closed the schools. Through to Thursday. Mind boggling. Back home after 4pm, arriving same time as the others from new playgroup - which includes hand-me-down clothes and valentines including a special umbrella. (Unfortunately Mom slipped on the ice, fell on her butt and knocked heads with little one.) To standard snooze, then some play. Dinner after 6pm, little one's still restless (except between 8 and 9pm). After half an hour of soothing, need to shovel snow, downstairs before 10:30pm.
Wednesday: Briefly awake 4am, but then not until cries at 6:15am, so seven hours sleep. Unfortunately upstairs, been awake every couple hours, so with Alexandra for five and a half hours to give a break. Did breakfast myself at 9am, two snoozes (standard 8am, then an hour before 11am) and played with tupperware lids. Snowed almost constantly during that time, so over an hour shovelling after, plus more time to get to the store. Finally a bit of a break until 3pm, then marinading fish and a half hour with Alexandra. (Poor girl whacked herself in the head while knocking her two bells together.) Exchanging of Valentine's cards, math conference call, bedtime routine. Mom steps in with her as fish is being cooked, then wine with dinner, and "Murder She Wrote" review video. Dad's turn before 10pm. Downstairs by 11pm.
Thursday: A little over five hours sleep; it always seems to balance out to six, huh? With Alexandra for about 20 minutes after 7am - over five minutes on her tummy! (She went into it herself and was encouraged.) Standard school with some math help at lunch, and Seussical rehearsal after. Bought gas (before prices go up 7c?), home for 5:45pm. (Two toys rented from group, one has lots of mirrors.) Some time with wee munchkin before dinner, which is after 6:15. Fussing from 7:40 to 8:40 is consistent, then nothing until after 10pm when I basically collapse.
Friday: Awake before 5am, so six hours. She's briefly awake at 6am but asleep once I'm upstairs; with her for over half an hour after 6:45am. Including more tummy when she tried to pull herself over my leg. Standard school plus anime club (in adjacent room), and Seussical after school, for not quite an hour. Some damage to self on the way home while shopping, plus flooding on the freeway, so not home until 5pm. Got a half hour with the little one (including new mirror toy borrowed from group), dinner at 6pm. Needed a half hour before 8pm, when that failed 10 minutes later, Mom tried. Silence; downstairs after 10:30pm. (Alexandra only awakens 1am, also had diluted bottle.)
Saturday: Stuffed nose distress at 3am. Trouble getting back to sleep, but then out until almost 7:30am. (!) So seven hours sleep, split in the middle. With little one for 2.5 hours after (including snooze); moved toy box out to main area with "new" toys taking up space. Sorting out trip, breakfast before 11am. With Alexandra again from 11:30 (including snooze), managed to load up car to meet Anne-Lise after 1:30pm, then on to Hawkesbury. Almost five hours there (including snooze before 5pm despite her sleeping en route), pleasant visit, managed a photo of her at the piano. Home for 9pm, more food, and she settled in crib reasonably well. Downstairs from 11pm. I may be coming down with a cold.
