Day 23: Tired Baby Boy Leads To Productive Day

Two status posts in one day? What gives? Well, I have a lot more energy than I did last night at this time.

Why? Well for whatever reason, the baby boy was pretty cranky and tired today. He put in some serious doze time. With Harry at preschool, that left me to have a lot of time to myself.

Time to catch up on the house, time to read and of course, time to catch up on my blogs.

I am not sure if it is a growth spurt, more teeth coming or just a general boredom with me, but Charlie was sleeping today like a 30-year old with a hangover (not that I am comparing it to myself).

He has almost a 2-hour morning nap and a 3.5 hour afternoon nap. Then he went to bed 15 minutes early and was out like a light.

Hey, I am not complaining.

When Harry was home, we played more Angry Birds (on the floor and on the phone) and had a quiet boy dinner with mom being out at some fancy work dinner.

Before bed there was jolly jumper time and Harry was showing Charlie the proper way to jump. It is pretty funny stuff.

All-in-all it was a very good day with a lot of time for myself.

That being said, I think I spent way too much time playing Angry Birds Star Wars and spying on what my neighbours consider garbage and what is recycling.

One cool highlight was my first dad related guest post was published today over at the Dads Roundtable. It is about Harry and how I need to remember that he only three. Sometimes I expect more than what he can give and I just need to take a step back. Check it out, and check out that blog. It has a lot of great articles from dads.

Well, the night is young, time to do some laundry.
