Off Days

Days like today are more challenging than other days. While the girls did sleep all night last night, both of them for a change, they both woke up this morning at 5:45. Usually they get up between 7:30 and 8:30, so on days like today I have to especially patient and have to just roll with the punches. On days like today instead of waking up at 8:00 the girls are usually going down for their first nap of the day, can you imagine taking a nap at 8:00 am? It does allow me to get ready much earlier than normal, but most of the day is working around the next nap. They will probably sleep until 9 or 10 and then need to sleep again around 11 or 12 and then again at 3 or 4, only to have to be woken, by me, no later than 5:30. Other times they only take 2 naps and just aren't as happy as they normally are. Days like this also cause me to wonder why in the world they woke up so early. Maybe they are really teething this time...I feel like they have been teething for 6 months, but Maddie cannot stop drooling. Or maybe it is because they are reaching that milestone of walking...who knows what is going on, but all I know is that hopefully the sun will come out at some point, we will get a walk in and we will have fun playing with their Nana and Poppi this afternoon! So here is to off days and the challenges they bring and the ability to roll with the punches.
