Our day started at 4:00 with Isaac crying. 2 hours later, it was followed with Ethan and Audrey getting up before they should have and not going back to bed when we told them. Isaac’s schedule has been so completely messed up. He has been fighting naps now that we no longer swaddle him. He’s too big to be swaddled and the blanket is ending up around his head and that’s not safe. It’s not an option to do that anymore. I was so exhausted and worn out and the day had hardly begun. Ethan was being particularly naughty. I know that “this too shall pass”, but it has become one of my least favorite sayings. Please don’t post that if you post a comment! I sat an cried this morning. I wanted to run away.
On a lighter note, today is Nathan’s birthday. We had chili and corn muffins for supper. For dessert we had crazy cake and ice cream and cool whip. I did a tempo run tonight. A tempo run is when you start out slow and gradually increase your speed until you’re running full throttle as fast as you can for 2 minutes. Then you gradually slow down. I had new shoes that I needed to try out and it was fun to get out. I am still figuring out how to gradually speed up. I have one more run before the race on Saturday. I plan to do a slow 5k distance on Wednesday and then rest until Saturday.
To bed early tonight.
*** maybe not so early. Ethan was still awake at 9. Both kids had spankings tonight. What an awful way to end the day. ***
