This Too Shall Pass

At least, that's what I keep telling myself.
It's a growth spurt, maybe.  Or a phase.  Maybe it's the time change.
WG is not sleeping.
And she's hungry.
All. The. Time.
Last night she fell asleep at 7:30, having awoken at 5 AM that morning and raided the fridge, which Hubby forgot to lock.  (We don't want a repeat of the Chicken Incident.)
She then woke up 3 hours later, and stayed that way.
All night.
Hubby stayed in her room, but he's a deep sleeper.  At 3:30 I heard her go downstairs.  I followed, and she was sitting in front of the fridge, looking at it.  I unlocked it and gave her, what else, some chicken.  Which she gobbled (sorry) up, and then went back to her room.  I then put the gate up, knowing it probably wouldn't stop her, but hoping I'd at least hear it crash if she decided to escape again.  Luckily, she decided to stay in her room and play.
We figured she'd be exhausted by noon.  That her poor teachers would have to deal with her cranky tiredness.  But no!  She had a very good day, came home happy as a clam, and stayed that way until 7:00 PM, when her little eyelids started drooping.  Not wanting a repeat of last night, I drew a bath for her, which woke her up for a bit.
It is now 9 PM, and she fell asleep about 15 minutes ago.  Hopefully she will sleep through the night, and we'll be back on track.

Luckily I had the day off.  After dropping LG off at school and running a couple of errands, I came home and slept.
Until 1:00.
And I am already thinking about going back to bed.
Because, hey, all the cool kids go to bed at 9:00 on a Friday, right?
And I wonder why I no longer have a career on stage...

On a better note, I used our Spin bike again yesterday.  I found a Johhny G workout on YouTube (he invented Spinning), and off I went.  I then did 30 minutes of Ballet Beautiful workouts.
I think next time I'll reverse the order.  My legs were so wobbly from Spinning I could barely stand, let alone actually LIFT them.
And Swan Arms for 15 minutes?  Holy cow!!!!!!!  No wonder ballerinas are so strong!

Tomorrow morning I teach Pilates, but then I'm off for a week(!)  I'll do my yoga, Spinning, and Ballet Beautiful.  But I also think I want to nap while the kids are in school. Today felt so indulgent, like I was Getting Away With Something.
I LIKE it!
Naps are highly underrated, if you ask me.

And with that, I will bid you good night.
Have a great weekend!

Mmm. naps. I've never been very good at them. Usually by the time it's supposed to be over I'm finally just about to doze off, but the odd time I get one (especially if it's with the cats int he sunshine) they are lovely.

Cats are GREAT napping role models!
