Daddy Day Care - Day 9

Today Daddy Day Care had one of it's rockiest mornings yet. The wee one started all cute and cuddly in the morning - slept in late, had lots of giggles and cute smiles, but then the mischief started. Nothing huge at first. Normal naptime came and went. Attempt #2 also met with failure. By the time 10am rolled around, attempts #3, #4 and #5 had also failed and we were running out of time to nap before Rainbow Songs. Dad was starting to get a bit panicked.

The little guy finally went down and woke just in time for the outing, but he must have eaten after midnight because it was all downhill from there.  Rainbow Songs was spent in a mixture of tears and hyperventilating. Bottles and comforting were refused, repeatedly.

Don't get him wet, keep him out of bright light, and never feed him after midnight.

Afternoon naptime was a relief for Daddy, as the Gremlin didn't put up too much of a fight. Hopefully the brake lines won't have been chewed through. He slept well until four when Daddy thought it was time to try the "outing thing" again. This time just a walk and everyone had fun. The weather was mild and the little guy loved playing peek-a-boo with his stroller muff. After a nice long walk (with a quick stop at the LCBO for Daddy), we met Mommy at home for dinner and family fun time. The little guy then settled down to a peaceful sleep while Mommy and Daddy ordered in. At least the week is almost finished.

Tomorrow we hit double-digits of Daddy Day Care and Gia-Gia comes to visit. Looks like it'll be a good weekend!
