Time is just flying and I'm feeling incredibly stressed about it. I can't seem to get my time management under control. Part of the problem could be Bailey's transition from her crib to her big girl bed. It's difficult to convince her to go to sleep without lying in bed with her and waiting for her to fall asleep but then I get sleepy in the dark room with the noise machine pumping out the sounds of ocean waves. Not to mention that her room has the most comfortable temperature in the house. I tend to fall asleep waiting for her to do the same and then before I know it it's the middle of the night and I'm still too sleepy to get up and do anything useful.
The result has been that I've had to do dishes, clean the living room, and even shower in the morning instead of before bed. That leaves me feeling overworked much earlier in the day and then instead of getting something done during nap time I tend to nap along with Bailey. It's a vicious cycle too because I can't seem to just get things done before bedtime so that I'll have less to do when I wake up in the morning. I feel like a zombie most days, walking around just trying not to fall asleep.
Last week Bailey and I spent a whole day just vegging. We watched all of her favorite shows and movies on Netflix, played with blocks, shared a huge plate of scrambled eggs (the kid can put away 4-5 eggs on her own), and snuggled in my chair together most of the day. It was a wonderful if not particularly productive day.
We had a selfie session because she loves to see us on the camera together.
She likes to climb on my back while I read. She got an adorable little book of bedtime stories for her birthday and she's obsessed with the first story in the book, "Sweet Dreams Curious George" so I have to read it to her every night before bed.
