Monday and tired

It was an interesting weekend. I had a great time with my friend at the spa on Friday. I didn’t know how much I needed that. Nate and I had a relaxing Friday night, we had fun with a friend on Saturday night, and I had a nice Mother’s Day! One little problem has crept into the weekend. Fynn’s sleeping schedule is completely messed up. A while back I mentioned that he might be dropping a nap. Since he seemed to be dropping that nap anyways, we tried to transition him to one nap, but that turned into a nap at 12:30 PM – 2:30 PM and then another nap at 7:30 PM – 8:30 PM (when we thought he was down for the night) and then he went to bed, finally, at 11:30 PM. Since he was up so late last night, again, I’m trying to add back in the morning siesta. I’m trying a 1 hour to 1 hour and 15 minute nap in the morning and another hour and a 1/2 at the most in the afternoon. I’m thinking he’s getting overtired, but then sleeping too much during the day.

All this sleeping stuff is really frustrating. I know all of you moms out there know exactly what I mean. There isn’t a ton you can do. You can try to keep a consistent schedule, but then they get a cold or start another round of teething. It’s exhausting. I’m hoping we get back to some kind of normal sleeping pattern soon. Luckily, he stays asleep once he goes down at 11 PM until 6:30 or 7:00 AM. Hmmmmm……I wish babies were easier. Ha! How many times do you think that has been uttered over the centuries?!
