The best laid plans

So I'm all ready to go down the street to a playdate & yet, now I sit here typing this up. I'm unshowered but the hair is washed, dressed in un-sweatpants like fashion, even a wee bit of mascara on to make myself look more awake than I actually am. I've had 2 large cups of java to get myself going & the Doodles is all dressed & ready to go. While I was making myself presentable she was playing away in her crib, having fun with her musical guitar (I know, what is a guitar if not musical.... whatever, it makes noise and has no strings). I decide to see if she wants to nurse before we head out & she hoovers away at my boob until she falls asleep 3 minutes later.

Sleeping beauty

How can I wake that up?

So anyway, this week I am suffering once again from insomnia & am ready to kill the dog & anyone else that crosses me. It started when Calvin was gone for the weekend & the dog decided to stay up all night whining because he must've had a stomach ache. How do I know that? Because I had to let him outside at midnight, 1:30, 3:45, 4:50 & 6:00 am. Because even with doing that he still took a dump in the basement. Not something easy to pick up either. No it had to be the slimiest, most gag-inducing crap I've ever had the un-pleasure of trying to scrape into three layers of plastic bags & the biggest handful of industrial strength paper towels ever. After that the dog disturbance abated but my so did my sleep. I've been lying awake at night for hours thinking & ruminating over what chaos I might come across next. It's driving me bonkers.

Some of the chaos involves going on a plane tomorrow. Me, the Doodles, my friend & her 16 month old are about to fly to Halifax to visit another mutual friend. I'm super excited to go but a little nervous at how the plane ride will end up with a squirming 19 pound (?) monkey girl on my lap that likes to practice her operatic screeching whenever someone needs to concentrate. I've been going over what to pack, how the whole check-in security gate thing will work with her in a Bjorn & whether to give her a dose of Tempra / Gravol ? before we go. Dope her up? Nurse on take-off & landing? Bring earplugs for nearby passengers?

I gotta get some sleep man.
Like this preferably....

Sweet slumber. Posted by Picasa

Not sure if I'll get a chance to post over the next week while I'm gone so miss me ok?

P.S. I wrote the previous message after two glasses of wine. I just re-read it and noticed that I cannot type and it appears that two glasses of wine is more than I can handle. Ooops

She's so gorgeous it hurts, kinda.

When WB and I flew west, I nursed her on take off and landing (best I could - she squirmed) and on the way back I gave her a small dose of Tempra which worked wonders - she was much more comfortable on take off. Oh, and teething biscuits.

E-mail me if you want more advice. We're jet-setters now, WonderBaby and I. Yo.

pink is definately her color...plane ride should be fine, acetaminophen can't hurt...say hi to Andrea etc. for me...have fun

Mum said...

Bye Bye Girls

Take lots of pink clothes for Princess Freyja. I agree with Heather that is her colour. (She shares that with her gramma - moi I mean).

Have loads o' fun and frolic. Eager for your trip west to begin.


Maggie said...

I'm sure the flight will be fine. Hopefully the attendants are helpful. You're not flying Air Canada are you?
I've recently discovered that bright pink is a good colour for me too. Brynn and I wear it all the time. Must be in the genes.
See you in July.

hey there, Bumper and I have flown to Halifax twice now (3mths & 7mths) without any probs (and she is Operatic and growly also!). I nursed on take-off and landing without any probs and as long as you don't get stuck sitting in the middle seat you should be fine. Last time I was booked in the middle seat but I told them I was nursing and they switched it at the gate. It was stress-free both times and I did it all by my lonesome. If I can d it - you can too! Bring the tempra just in case ;)

Loving your blog and have a great trip.
