Weekend Wind-Up

February 19, 2013

It was a long weekend here in Ontario, and since we haven’t seen A’s family since his nephew was born a month ago, we decided to make the trek east for a visit!

Since its a three hour drive and Molly sleeps in the car, I was worried about disturbing her routine. She doesn’t sleep much in the morning, and leaving Friday afternoon wasn’t an option, so I decided that Friday night was our best bet. If we left close to her bedtime, she would be asleep quickly and it would be a quick feed when we arrived to get her settled again. Sounds good, right?


It was a mess. She alternately cried and slept, which meant I ended up in the back seat for most of the trip, lulling her back to sleep with my iPhone. (The Baby Touch and Hear – Listen Sounds app is worth the .99 cents it cost!). She didn’t fully settle until well after we got there and didn’t go back to sleep until close to 2am!! Luckily her normal routine wasn’t disturbed and in fact the next night she actually slept 11 hours straight, something she hasn’t done in weeks!

Saturday morning we got up and Molly was her usual happy self. We had a family breakfast and then got down to the important business of relaxing, alternately playing cards and playing with babies and snacking for the rest of the day!

Sunday was much of the same, until it was time for us to go. We had a great time chatting, laughing and baby watching šŸ™‚

Happily the ride home was tears free (from both of us) and we only had to stop once: A needed a coffee!

Holiday Monday was a true relaxation day for us. Molly treated me with a 2.5 hour nap! She NEVER does that anymore. But she’s had a little cold, so I imagine she’s sleeping it off. Dinner with my family rounded off a truly family oriented Family Day weekend. We’re so lucky to have our parents and siblings close by (within driving distance).

I hope everyone had a great weekend!
