I wish I could type the horn sound to follow up that phrase. But I think that’s impossible. (Beda Deda Dedun….??)
We’ve had a schedule change here. Joshua has decided that one nap a day is plenty for him. I’m kind of okay with that. Or, well, I’m GETTING more okay with that. See, I used to do my blogging during his morning nap. I’d drink my coffee, eat my cereal, whip out a blog post, tweet a bit, and then he’d be up.
Now, I don’t have that luxury. So I have to figure out when to blog again. At night after he goes to sleep? The afternoon nap? Whenever I can like I’m doing now? It’s hard to figure out the timing again. Especially because I find that I’m needing to get him out of the house in the morning in order to keep him awake until the afternoon.
Last week he was taking his ONE nap of the day at 9:00 in the morning. And he’d sleep a couple of hours and then nothing. Until bedtime. At 7:00 p.m. CRANKY BABY. This week I’ve devised a plan where I get him out of the house in the morning and we make it back here around noon. Then I put him down for a nap. (I say I’ve devised a plan like I’ve actually had this work more than once. Wishful thinking? Probably.)
Yesterday was awesome. We got up and went swimming and then out to lunch with a friend. Then we came back here and he slept for three hours. It was a clockwork, perfect day. And I desperately want to repeat those days. We’ll see how it goes, I guess.
Back to the point.
I’ve got a lot of things I want to write about and I’m finding that the time in which I have to write these posts is limited. There are two awesome blog hops going on right now and I want to participate in both. Joshua’s 15 month well baby check up is tomorrow and I want to blog about his milestones since the last visit so I can remind myself that I’m not a total screw-up at this parenting thing before going in there and being asked all those questions that make me feel like a screw-up. I want to blog about him going swimming on Sunday as the end of our Staycation and how much FUN he had and how I MUST one day have a pool. I have half a post that is in my drafts folder, unfinished.
But now, it’s breakfast time. And then it’ll be time for me to shower and get out of the house so I can keep him awake until I want him to go to sleep. And I suppose that means I’ll blog this afternoon. I guess.
So, dear readers, if I seem like I’ve fallen off the planet, I haven’t. I’m just trying to restructure or regroup or resomething.
How do you find time for blogging, bloggers?
