I slept in this morning, after going to bed around 9, until 6:30. I was just going to take an off day because I'm so tired lately (house, kids, training) and the bike ride yesterday just killed me. The kids didn't even get up till 7:30 - go figure. While Nick was napping, Kara was awake so I put her in the stroller and did laps around our complex for a while. So I got to sleep in and work out during "nap time." My pace was so slow, I don't even know how people run normal pace or fast with the joggers. I am so slow with it. I feel like I could have gone for hours and hours to clear my head. She fell asleep for 30 minutes so that was good. I used the double jogger because it has the swivel wheel. I want to sell my ironman and get a single revolution on craigs list! That thing annoys me that it won't make turns easily.
Nick is getting into fighting bed time. What kills me is that he has been a great routine/ bedtime kid on his own all this time (he just turned 2 1/2). We would do bath, read books and say goodnight and he'd go to sleep on his own. I don't know what happened but he wants us to lay with him and rub his back. Now the storms last week didn't help too much but it shouldn't be just that. It's 9pm and he's still awake and this has been going on for probably 3-4 nights now. I can't help but blame my mom because I feel like she always lays with him and goes to sleep with him and leaves the light on when he asks. And I know that's cruel because it's sweet for grandma to do that, but it totally screws us up and takes away any spouse time that we have. Is this a phase? Did it happen to you?
