And me? I got exactly what I wanted. I got a roll of quarters. Laundry day again. Yeah. But we really need to start re-wearing our clothes a bit more. I think I’ve spent close to $20 in quarters in 11 days. What is wrong with us?
Dan finally strung up some Christmas lights to fit in with the rest of the lit up trailers at the Shady Dell. And he set up a chair outside for each one of us too. Funny how Mila has the biggest “chair” nearest to the door. And where are we headed? For a Valentine’s Day treat down the street.
But today was a rough day for Mila. She has been sleeping worse and worse at night. I swear she woke up at least 8 times last night and refused to sleep longer than 10 minutes during nap time while on the bed. (Hmmmm, maybe I should stop taking pictures of her at nap time!) . Anyways, that makes for one grouchy baby and one sleepy Mama. But lookie here. Dada to the rescue. And who says tough guys can’t wear baby slings? Not me.
And just as she was growing tired of hanging out with us ‘big people’, a friend shows up with her shiny vintage Airstream in tow.
We all headed to a local Mexican food restaurant for dinner and talked about life on the road with our new friends. We also talked about how our littlest ones are not sleeping too well. Mila’s sleep pattern is really doing a number on me at the moment. It is totally my fault. I currently have her sleep in the bed with us instead of in the crib we brought along for her. So for Valentine’s Day, I got Mila her first sleep training night. Sorry little one. At their bedtime, we normally throw both of the girls on the bed and close the divider so Dan and I can stay up past 8 pm… and then move Ava out to the gaucho later on. But tonight we set up the crib right away. And to block the light, we threw a sheet over part of the crib. Don’t laugh. It totally worked. Yeah, Mila cried for 20 minutes but then guess what? I slept from 2am-7:30am. Straight. And that hasn’t happened in 5+ months.
