Lies!! All lies!

I take back all the nice things I said about my baby this morning. ALL OF THEM. See, the sleeping thing? While I wouldn’t trade it for the world and a cookie, the napping issue needs some work.

We trekked out to the farmer’s market today around 10:30. It doesn’t open until 11, and I knew I’d be cutting lunch/naptime pretty close but it was a risk I was willing to take for ultra-local cheese and the 50-gallon drum of half-sour pickles I bought (what was I supposed to do? The pickle guy was HOT.).

As I had feared, The Jillian fell asleep not 10 minutes from home. I tried reaching back around to poke her in the leg or pinch her kneecaps, but once she’s out, she’s OUT. This is generally a good thing.

I pulled into the driveway and turned the car off which woke her up, all “Whuh hunh?” Lunch was had, sorta, and then she was still sort of cranky/whiny, so I threw her in the crib and hoped for the best.

That was at 12:30, which is the time I normally put her down for her nap.

It’s now 3:30, which is the time I normally retrieve her from her crib after her nap.

She just fell asleep. And now she’ll probably sleep until 5PM, like she did one day last week and then she’ll be up until 9 or some ungodly hour like that which means Mama doesn’t get a damn break at all today MY GOD KILL ME.

Eh, it’s okay – she is hilariously cute. She spent the bulk of the afternoon talking to her stuffed animals and singing the ABC song over and over. She has never once tried to climb out of her crib (though now I’ve written that, she will start), and actually loves being in there quite a bit.

OH FANTASTIC. Now that she’s going to be awake and ready to go outside to “ride on sweet wheels” there is thunder. EXCELLENT. [eyeroll] ‘S okay. We’ll “draw wif crans?”
