Usually Yannick and I take turns getting up with the kids while the other gets to sleep in a bit longer. The store opens only at 10am on Saturdays, so that’s his morning to sleep in until 9, and Mondays (our day off) is my morning to sleep in while he takes the kids to daycare. Sundays we both get up ‘cus that’s swimming lesson morning. Well there has been so much going on lately that I don’t think I’ve had a chance to sleep in in almost a week!
Last week we had another hospital appointment for Henri, followed on what should have been my next morning to sleep in by his 2-year checkup, then Monday (yesterday) I couldn’t sleep in ‘cus I had my annual physical, and this morning I got up even earlier to go down to the hospital for my preop for my hernia surgery (again!) in early March. Well…I *thought* I had to go today. Of course, I only found out that my appointment was actually TOMORROW after arriving at the hospital and waiting long enough to have to pay for parking. Great, not only do I have to pay again tomorrow, but it’s one more day I can’t sleep in.
Sunday was our first swimming lesson of this session ‘cus we skipped last week as it started too close to Henri’s birthday party and we didn’t want to rush it that much. Now that Henri’s in “white”, it’s the first time that neither Yannick or I went in the water with him. I honestly didn’t think he’d sit on the side of the pool, I fully expected him to keep getting up and running around the pool. Luckily he stayed put! He did cry quite a bit, but he stayed where he was supposed to, and was laughing and splashing by the end of the class, so there was definately improvement!
I don’t remember if I mentioned that Maaike came over to do a photoshoot for the latest KP pattern. We had to use Jakob’s room and since he wasn’t sleeping anyways we just opened the lights and went in. He was being EXTREMELY silly and playful and while I was setting up some shots Maaike snapped some really cute photos of him. This is one of my favorites.
I just realized- can you see the two blankets in the photo? The blue/white one to the right is the entrelac blankie I knit while pregnant with him, and the white one to the left is the alphabet blankie I knit while pregant with him. He likes having both in bed with him, and sometimes asks me to “wrap him up in Mommy’s love” to go to sleep. 🙂
Since I’ve had some good wait times lately, either in the car while Yannick drove, or while waiting at doctor’s offices, I’ve had a chance to work on my Featherweight Cardigan. Last week I split the arms and body and now am continuing on the body part first. Once the body is to length I will do the front band, THEN move onto the arms. I don’t mind if the arms are three-quarter-length or even short-sleeved, but it will really suck if I run out of yarn doing the front band, ‘cus this yarn is from my grandmother’s stash and I don’t think it would be possible to get any more. Besides the bit shown I’ve still got 7 more balls. What you see so far (including the ball still attached) is 3 balls. I don’t think I’ll run out…but just to be safe that’s how I’m going to handle it.
And now I’ve just finished some paperwork for work that I started at 7:00pm and just finished about 10 minutes ago (11:40pm). I have to be back at the hospital for 8am tomorrow for the REAL pre-op, so I’m going to take 2 Tylenol 1s (for the pain in my leg and belly) and hopefully fall asleep right away.

That sucks that you went to the hospital and realized your appointment was tomorrow. Good luck tomorrow.
I wish I didn’t have to go into the water with Mack – but I still have to until he’s 3 years old at the Civic Center. One-two more sessions and he’ll be on his own, and then I’ll have to go in with just Quentin. I like the Civic Center because it’s close to home.
Great progress on the Featherweight Cardigan. I can’t wait to see it done!

You’ve reminded me that I need to sign RJ up for swim lessons. I think she’ll really love it. All the family/work/school stuff really does affect sleep, doesn’t it? Ugh, sorry about the hospital stuff; I hope it all goes well!
