Every morning I wake up with a long mental list of things I’d like to do and every night I go to bed with a long mental list of things I never did. This is probably because according to Waylon, this is how the day should look:
5am-6am: Wake up, eat, and refuse to be put back into the crib.
6am-9am: Doze on and off in bed with Mom and Dad with many breaks for vigorous snacking.
9am-2pm: Be awake and be held with many breaks for vigorous snacking. Refuse to be put down.
2pm-2:30pm: Eat a lot.
6pm-9pm: Be awake and be held with many breaks for vigorous snacking. Maybe tolerate a walk.
9pm-9:15pm: Bath time with Daddy.
9:15pm-9:30pm: Be deliriously happy wrapped up in the bath towel. Poop in towel.
Also be sure to schedule in plenty of time for dozens of diaper and outfit changes. And that’s a good day. A really good day. Bad days include a lot more gas and spit up (reflux) and a lot less sleep. If you’ve ever had a newborn, this is old news. For me, it’s brand new.
Other things that are brand new: constantly smelling like regurgitated breast-milk, falling asleep sitting upright, and forgetting to brush my teeth. But according to Waylon, this is life.
More to come.
