Baby Time

March 28, 2016

Dear Baby,

One of my favourite things about us is that we don’t give a shit about schedules. Just like mama, you run on your own schedule, march to your own drum, dance to your own beat… you do you. 

99% of the time not having a schedule works well for us. We do whatever we want and we are not tied down to being home for 1:38pm on the dot for your afternoon nap that will last for 64 minutes exactly. You nap when you want and wherever we are. It’s brilliant. 

1% of the time I want to make some solid plans but can’t because I have no idea what the day will bring. I imagine us going to a baby mama workout class that starts at 10:30 but you have other ideas in mind such as not sleeping. 

I may think that I will leave my house at a certain time and then can’t or I might assume that you will wake up from your nap in an hour and I only get 30 minutes. 

These moments are a bit frustrating and I spend about 5 seconds contemplating if I should have been more rigid with you. If in fact, you would be better on a strict schedule. These moments are few and far between. 

The flip side is that not having any kind of schedule makes it easy to do a ton of things at our leisure and gives me the ULTIMATE get out of jail free card with plans. If I can’t make it, I have the best excuse possible. For a person who goes through times of hermit- ism. This is great. 

Anywho, today I basically missed doing everything I had thought about doing because your day panned out in a way that was not conducive to my imagined itinerary so we just hung out at home. 

Cool story bro. 

Here’s the point of this rather boring post. You keep on doing you. Just because the world runs in a certain way doesn’t mean you have to conform to it. You are always free to do what you want, any old time. 

Take pride in your individuality and don’t stress- you will make it to Baby and Me spin class next time (or whatever it is you are up to). 

In the meantime, I’m having a great day with you just doing nothing. Thanks for being such excellent company.
