love, life, and the pursuit of liberation
I had every intention of blogging yesterday but I fell asleep putting LA to bed. She usually goes to bed very easily and knows at what point in the routine to close her eyes. Last night? She wanted to play, give me kisses, bounce on my lap, stand up, everything BUT close her eyes. I started the whole routine again, hoping that would jump start her to going to sleep because that usually works. Nope! I gave up and put her in our bed with the idea that once she fell asleep, I would put her in her bed. Well it worked, worked too well. I fell asleep too. A came to bed around 8 something and put LA in her bed. I went back to sleep only to be awakened by a very drowsy but very stupporn 6 month old at 2 something this morning wanting to cuddle. She would take her paci and go back to sleep, but wake up as soon as I made it back to our bedroom and our bed. After 3 rounds of this, I gave up and put her in our bed. She wimpered for her mommy (A) and cuddled under her and went to sleep. She is such a mess but she knows she’s my heart.
So all that to say that I didn’t do ANYTHING last night towards my 30 day challenge so I’m doubling up today.
My affirmation and gratitude:
1- I am grateful that work opportunities continue to come. I am so thankful that I have never burned bridges!
2- I affirm that I am above the academic curve and that my work is thorough and insightful.
