Some random thoughts for today, cause I'm feeling random. And having thoughts.
Normally, I do my Cara Figlia posts on Friday's, but I think I'm going to change that and do them on Saturdays and the Cara Mama letters on Sundays. It just makes more sense to me.
I got more search hits yesterday than I have any other day of my blogging life. I know you are dying to know what the search terms were that brought people to my blog, especially because of yesterday's topic...
-"baby fidgeting night"
-"baby kicks fidgets while sleeping"
-"fidgeting while breastfeeding"
-"push me mama love"
-"things mothers say"
-"toddler hates having nose wiped"
I told you all I get a bunch of searches about the baby fidgets! The hits came from Canada, Bulgaria and the UK, and it looks like no one stayed to read. So I guess my two posts about my fidgety baby did not help them. I do not quite get the search for "push me mama love," but whatever.
Just when I start getting used to the Pumpkin not waking up until 6:00 or later, she gets up earlier. Our week went like this: Sunday up at 7:00 (That's right! 7!!!), Monday up at 6:30, Tuesday up at 6:15, Wednesday up at 6:00, Thursday up at 5:30 and this morning up at 5:00 (Plus she was up at 11:45, and thank you, Londo, for rocking her back to sleep). I'm thinking it's a pattern and I'm a little worried about the nights and mornings to come. Especially because...
My wonderful hubby is going out of town. He is right now on his way to the airport. He will be gone until very late Monday night. I'm hoping this weekend goes well, but the Pumpkin has been extra fussy lately. One of her teeth is just about to break through. Hopefully it will very soon, and that will at least make her sleep better. I can handle the fussing if she is at least sleeping.
So, Mama's Flying Solo this time, although it is not my first or even second time.
Why is it that I keep referring to myself in the third person to the Pumpkin? Is this normal, or am I an episode of Seinfeld? It's going beyond "Come to Mama" and into things like "Mama doesn't like it when you do that" or "Mama needs to go over here." I'm really trying to stop it before it gets out of hand.
I've got more, but I'll save it for another day. I've even got some longer topics I want to cover that I haven't had time to write up yet. I'm hoping to have some time over the weekend to start them, but with Londo out of town, I'm not sure what my days and nights will be like.
