After a crummy week, I went to bed last night knowing that today was going to be a new day, and a fresh start - even if it's a Friday!!
I woke up around 7:45AM - unusual because I am typically up around 6:30/7:00 with my daughter on my days off. I checked to make sure the monitor was on, which it was, and couldn't believe that she was letting me sleep in
I used to think sleeping in was til noon!! I rolled over, and fell back asleep knowing I would be up in another 15 minutes or so with her talking from her crib.
I wake back up, look at the clock and it's now 9:30. I start freaking out! There is no way she can still be sleeping, I even put her to bed extra early last night (around 7:30) and her usual bedtime is between 8:30PM & 9:00PM. We always stuck with a later bedtime because when I work 12 hour shifts I get really sad if I don't see her when I get home from work.
I woke up my STB (soon to be) Hubby and said I can not go into her room to check on her by myself. He laughed at me, told me "she's fine" and rolled over and went back to sleep. He works this awful 5:00PM -3:00AM shift so I know he was still really tired and didn't want to listen to my ridiculousness.
I sat there on the edge of my bed panicking. I thought all sorts of scary things, did she stop breathing in her sleep, did someone break through the window and steal her, did she suffocate on her favorite stuffed animal that I let her sleep with?? The thought of SIDS (sudden infant death syndrome) scares the shit of of me - even before I had kids. I actually starting crying because I was so scared to check on her.
It took everything out of me to go check on her. I slowly opened her bedroom door and peeked in. I saw her laying on her belly with her bum up in the air - her usual sleeping position. I still wasn't convinced she was OK so I walked over to her crib to get a closer look. My daughter who is a ridiculously light sleeper didn't even budge while I made the hardwood floor creek walking on it. I got really close, saw she was breathing, saw her little back was rising, her lips were moving and she was OK!! I was beyond relieved. I get myself so psyched up and apparently she was just tired.
She ended up waking up around 10:15AM and I couldn't stop hugging and kissing her!
I hope I'm not the only crazy mom who gets freaked out by things like that!
|Gianna and that darn thumb!!! |
|My *go to* breakfast ingredient. I measured out 4 egg whites|
|1/4 cup cheese = 110 calories|
|"someone" ate the rest of the turkey sausage so I cut 2 slices of turkey|
I seasoned with a little salt and pepper and the end result was delicious!
A trick I learned was to start eating off of smaller plates - the plate above was a side dish. It felt like I was "eating more" because the plate was full.
