Pumpkin's schedule is unpredictable right now. I think this is one of the reasons that I am having such a hard time with sleep deprivation. I never know if she'll wake up at midnight, or not until 1, or even (on really good nights) not until 2. I think I never really get deep sleep because of this.

She has also been messing with her nursing schedule. I've adopted the nursing equivalent of don't ask, don't tell- it is called "don't offer, don't refuse". She seems to be moving towards dropping the first thing in the morning nursing, although that is not yet consistent. She also sometimes asks to nurse (she says "Boppy!") when we get home from work/day care. Tonight, she didn't want to nurse after her walk, but insisted on nursing right before storytime. And of course, she has shown no inclination whatsoever to drop the middle of the night nursing. Don't offer, don't refuse is not as easy as it sounds!

In completely unrelated scheduling news, I have finally broken down and started a Google Calendar for our household. We'll see how it goes. Someone I work with told me that he found a way to send things from his Google calendar to his work calendar. I might work on that next week. I've been holding off on the Google household calendar for so long because the idea of multiple calendars bothers the data geek in me. I want one calendar to rule them all....


  1. I could have written this post except for the nursing part. The good thing about the night waking troubles is that now that we don't do middle-of-the-night feedings, hubby and I trade off nights getting her (and cosleeping with her for the rest of the night). So at least every other night, I know I can probably sleep through the night. Unless hubby is having a lot of trouble.

    I'm SO ready for full nights of sleep. Seriously, hasn't it been long enough? Aren't they old enough now to do it???

  2. Oh, and the google calendar I started was good, until I just got too busy to keep up with it. I'm about to start back up with it. Let me know how it goes for you guys!
