as my sweet child takes his first nap at 7:45am this morning, let me take a moment to say good morning to you all. (that’s right. i said NAP. anyone else been up since 5am?)
there is nothing like a wide awake, cooing, kicking child who squeezes your forearms with his little hands as you try to change his diaper by the glow of a small owl nightlight. when said child decides that this diaper change is not just a brief interruption to the night’s sleep, but rather is the start to the day, you can be certain that the extra 2 hours of awake time makes for a long morning.
it’s 8:15am and i’ve already played blocks and read a book with my kid, put him down for a nap, had my coffee and a little breakfast, and read the news. what’s next?
good thing it is super chilly outside. the little man and i can bundle up and take a long fall morning walk. and when you have a kid who is as cute and sweet as our little man, long mornings are the best.
time to go pick out a sweater.
