My date on Friday did not go as planned. Rachel and I were supposed to meet at a Children's Garden around 2:00 pm. Porgie almost always goes down for a nap at 11:00 am, and wakes up around 1:00 pm. Of course, she decided to mix things up on Friday.
To fully understand why her schedule went awry, I have to start at the very beginning. John got up for work at 5:30 am. My husband has an amazing ability to step on every creaky floor board in our house. By 5:45, Porgie was wide awake. I was way too tired to actually get my ass out of bed, so she happily played by herself in her crib until 6:30 am, when she finally fell back asleep. I went back to sleep too (actually I had been drifting in and out of sleep since 5:30).
I woke up at 9:00 am! 9:00 am!!! Porgie NEVER sleeps that late. NEVER. I woke Porgie up and we played for a few hours. When 11:00 am rolled around, I knew that she would have troubling going to sleep. I read her a few stories, feed her a bottle, and put her down in the crib. Of course, Porgie wasn't tired. She played in her crib until 1:00 pm, when she finally fell asleep.
In order for Porgie to function properly, she needs at least 1 1/2 hours of sleep. That would put us at 2:30 pm. Then I have to feed her lunch. That would put us at 3:00 pm. Then we would have to get dressed, and get ready to leave the house. That would put us at 3:30 pm. The garden was about 30 minutes away from my house. That would put us at 4:00 pm. And I would need to be home by 5:00 to start dinner. Obviously, this plan was not going to work.
So, I had to cancel our date with Rachel and Max. Rachel was super cool about the whole thing, but I feel bad nonetheless.
