Now when I walk in each morning to get her from her crib, she says “mama gotta go to work” in her saddest, most pitiful voice. Then, when I tell her I don’t & that I am staying with her all day, she screams “YAY!” so loud I’m sure the neighbors can hear. I can totally relate, I have given a few “YAY’s” myself, this time was much needed & long-awaited, that’s for sure.
I’m thinking its the excitement & that I will be eating my words in no time, but Waverly has been pretty great this past week. We have definitely had our moments (she ran after our poor dog for so long the other morning he went into hiding & also, she recently started to “bark” at other people who try to get on the slide at the park – perhaps she learned it from the dog?), but for the most part, we have had so much fun. I think we both feel like we are on vacation & we are very happy about it.

I’ve decided that summer makes for an exhausted toddler & therefore, does wonders for their sleep schedule, which is also nothing short of amazing. The other morning Waverly slept until 8:30, something that has never, ever happened in her 23 months of life. We have found a pretty good routine of going out for the day at about 10 & then leaving at 1 or 1:30, each time she has fallen asleep on the way home & after I put her in her crib, slept for so long I had to go in to wake her up. With her extra long naps, we decided to push back her bedtime from 7 to 8, which has given us lots of extra family time & also a family walk after dinner each night. It makes for long days & I’m pretty sure I am more tired at the end of the day now then when I was working, but it’s well, well worth it!
