What Was I Thinking?

What a day!! (and I think I'm crazy)

Alex got up at 6 am - had a bottle and played a little. Went to bed at 8:00 - slept for 45 minutes. We then got a bath, changed clothes, ate a little bit and then we were off.

We went:

1. To the daycare. We have our application fee in and the paperwork to fill out. I met the assistant director and she was really nice.

2. To the mall. (yes, you read that right - I went to the mall the week before Christmas) I met up with my friend Michelle, her three kids, her parents and my friend Cindy and her two kids. Michelle's kids got their picture taken with Santa. (her youngest - 13 months - screamed through the whole thing - it was priceless) We then ate and then played with all of the kids while Michelle took her youngest to a doctor's appointment.

3. Then we all went to yet another place that has to remain nameless. We went to get additional Christmas presents for the grandparents so I can't write about it since they both read the blog.

We didn't get home until 5:30. Alex had sort of a nap and sort of ate. Yikes!! He played for awhile - screamed for awhile - then took a bottle and went to bed a hour early.

I'm SO tired. There were so many people, and I don't think I've ever seen that many strollers in one place before! I'm just glad I didn't have to do any shopping.

13 more days until I go back to work.

This post made me tired just reading it. My day tomorrow will be almost that busy. Go to bed and get some sleep. Let's hope Alex sleeps good.

I went to the mall the other day and it was stroller central. It's rough taking a baby all over the place, isn't it??? It's not that easy to just go out and get a gallon of milk anymore. I find myself procrastinating a lot more these days when it involves leaving my house WITH the baby.
