My Dearest Cutie:
You are incredibly adorable at your five and a half months old stage. We would like to encourage all the cuteness you can muster between 5am (although 7am is preferred) and 8pm. However, we are unable to encourage or even condone adorable behavior between the hours of 8pm and 5am, specifically the 2am hour that you have chosen on recent nights. During normal cuteness hours, your own version of peek-a-boo, looking down at your crib mattress and then popping your head up and giggling, would be highly praised and returned. At 2am it will be ignored and met with only the non-interactive back rubbing intended to get you back to sleep, even though it has recently been failing miserably. Please consider going back to the sleep from 8pm to 5am that you tried out once last week, that was an excellent plan. We thank you for your cooperation,
"the management" a.k.a. really tired mom and dad.
In other news I have been positively drunk three days this month without taking a single drink. Food drunkenness and it was ugly. I had a plan that I would only exceed my calorie range three days this month. Yesterday was the fifth of the month and the third day over my calories. Sunday it was potato chips, yesterday it was french toast sticks. We try to feed the kids well, but there are a few convenience foods that we allow for those rushed mornings when a fast and portable breakfast is a necessity. Last night for dessert, Hot Wheels wanted a couple french toast sticks so we opened the bag. I proceeded to eat EIGHT over the course of the evening. They are my kryptonite (along with apple and key lime pie), I like them frozen or warm, any way I can get them. That's over 800 calories in pure crap. I felt it, too. The food induced insomnia coupled with Cutie night time fun meant I didn't even make it to the gym this morning. The past two mornings have been nothing workouts, too. I've gotten in late, thanks again to Cutie and the boys not sleeping, and put in a really half-assed effort when I was there. Won't be seeing 159.5 on the scale this week, I'm just hoping it won't be up TOO much for Sunday weigh-in.
Alright, enough whining, tomorrow's another day and I WILL be at the gym at 5:30am and get in a good workout. Twenty-three days left in the month to make it a good one.
