back to the grind

Happy New Year!!

I hope everyone had a fabulous and safe holiday.  And now we are back to the grind, recovering from turkey comas and long credit card bills.

Whenever my husband and I are on holidays for a week or more, we tend to throw off our sleep schedule.  That being said, it also throws off Lil J's sleep schedule.  Yes, I am guilty.  I'm that bad parent that lets her 2 1/2 year old stay up until 11:00pm, midnight....

This morning we were back to our usual schedule:  daycare for Lil J and work for Mommy and Daddy.  Unfortunately, due to the disruption to our sleep schedule, Lil J did not fall asleep until about 12:30AM last night {or early this morning to be technical} and I had to wake him up at 7:00am this morning.  He was not a happy camper.  And, boy, did I ever feel guilty.

Once we got to daycare, I think the early morning was such a shock to his system that he didn't cry...didn't even utter a word.  He got a little emotional as I left but his teacher quickly swooped him into her arms and off I went...looking back twice for a final goodbye....only to have Lil J completely ignore me {a punishment for me leaving him}.

We're definitely going to make sure that Lil J is on track with his schedule the next time hubby and I decide to take a few days off.  Torturing the poor sleep-deprived kid is definitely not worth it.
