Ayden had a rough night last night. Every now and then he will have a night where he'll keep standing up and asking to be covered back up... even though he was covered until he stood up. He'll lay there just long enough for us to drift back to sleep and then he'll stand up and do it again. He did this for about an hour and I think that is what made us so tired. It's nights like those that make me wonder if he'd do better in his own room without us right there to talk to. On the other hand, it makes me wonder how many times I'd be getting out of bed to tend to him on those nights if he wasn't right next to our bed. The good thing is that these nights are few and far between and the majority of the time he sleeps just fine with our current arrangement.
After a rough night, I was tired and grumpy this morning. It took me a while to get out of the funk but once I did I enjoyed the day. Ayden and I ran a couple of errands and then I spent a couple of hours cleaning for my mom's homecoming while my dad played with Ayden. Then we came home for lunch and Ayden's nap (during which I put dinner in the crock pot and had some downtime and painted my nails. In hind sight I should have napped too). I woke him from his nap, put him in the car and went to the studio to teach my Wednesday dance classes. From there we went straight to a visitation for my great uncle. While I was there my dad got my mom home safe and sound. I left the funeral home and went straight to their house to sit with my mom while my dad went and got her prescriptions filled and picked up some pudding, popsicles and such. We stayed there until almost 9:00 and left right when my dad got back. We were both TIRED.
While Ayden and I were with my mom, David and his dad were at the building site doing this:
|A layer of foam sill sealer, a layer of copper termite shield and another layer of the foam.|
The next step will be for them to install the sill plates.
Now that my mom is home I am realizing how taxing the daily drives to the hospital were. Now she is just a hop skip and a jump away and it is such a relief. I know she will be more comfortable and all of us will be too. Having Ayden in that tiny hospital room with all of those tempting buttons was hard work for sure... He called the nurse's station a good 8 times over the course of my mom's stay. He's lucky he's so darn cute, they all loved him and never cared a bit.
I haven't even wrapped my head around tomorrow yet. We usually go to story time so we'll probably make it there but after that who knows. I'll just have to see how tonight goes and how I feel tomorrow. It may end up being a stay home day. All I know is that it is time for me to be able to take it easy if I need to for a couple of days...
