to work and back

and not much else……

I have not even been back at work two weeks and I seem to have run out of blogging mojo….. I suppose the only things I am doing at present is going to work and then rushing home so the nanny can get her bus in time.  I don’t even have time to stop for some groceries or anything.

I am going to have to start blogging about stuff I see in traffic – NOT – but seems to be the only time I am out.  I think I need to do something about that.

I am hoping that when Baby OL settles into a bit more of a morning routine (and it is lighter) that I can run again before work.  Some days (if it were light) I could do it.  Like this morning, she woke up at 5am, I fed her and she went straight back to sleep.  Unfortunately there are also days like yesterday (and I say unfortunately solely in regards to running and not the fact that she slept late) when she woke up at 6:30am.

Back to her sleep patterns. She has always been very good, and slept through (12 hours) for the first time at 9 weeks and then did it for about 65% of the time.  However at about 14 weeks she started waking 2 – 3 times again.  Thankfully this week she has gone back to pretty much sleeping 12 hours or close to it again.  However, between Mr OL, the cats and the dogs they seem to be conspiring to keeping me awake.  Hmmm, maybe I should also put them all on sleep training???

  1. My advice – chuck the dogs and cats out of the bedroom and you will sleep!

    Welcome to mommyhood (well early mommyhood anyway). Life revolves solely around them. But enjoy it coz it doesn’t last long and before you know it she’ll be 12.

  2. My dog and my bladder conspire to deprive me of sleep. And the dog is not even in the same room, but I have to tip-toe through the house at night to the furthest bathroom so that the dog doesn’t wake up and starts whining and jumping against the door. And then she wakes up anyway at about 6:30 am and when she wakes up, I have to get up lest she destroys my study!

  3. Shayne – the dogs are acually outside, and the cat (the noisy one) sleeps in the lounge. It is just that she comes through at about 4 and wakes me up! She wantsout or food or something. I have tried closing our door, but then she scratches on the carpet outside it and wakes up Baby OL.

    Hanlie – my dogs sleep outside, but I think the shadows when it is windy make them think there is somebody there or something. Also if they hear us moving they start to whine. Not cool so early in the morning. Your puppy is gorgeous!

I would love to hear from you
