It is 10 o’clock on Friday night. The little one just fell asleep. He will be up by no later than 7am tomorrow morning. I suspect that he will be up in a few hours first though to start the beginning of our night which eventually bleeds into the next day. Somewhere around 12:30 tomorrow afternoon, he will go down for a nap where he will spend two hours peacefully sleeping. He will wake up and we will start the afternoon together. Around 7:30 tomorrow night, we will wind down and get ready to head up for a bath and then bed. Bedtime will commence somewhere between 8pm and 10pm. The night will bleed into the next day and it will start all over again.
There are still only 24 hours in a day. How I choose to spend those hours seems significantly different to me though. My days and nights are spent with my sidekick. Most days are busy, hectic and fun. Most nights have been busy, hectic and less than fun. Some nights have included sleep. Most have not. There are so few hours in my day anymore that don’t include my sidekick. During those few hours, I find that the last thing I want to do is fire up the internet. My time here has been far and few between. I don’t know how that will evolve or where it is headed but in the meantime, I will continue to follow my sidkick’s lead.
