Today has been "off" to say the least. Last night was the third night in which I felt awake most of the night. My mind and body are functioning in slow motion today! We've all been rather sleep deprived lately. Tennyson slept until the 8 o'clock hour, at which time he just laid in bed and chatted a bit. This is very unusual for him. He usually wakes within the 6 o'clock hour when we're up and starting the day. Even though he wasn't fussing to be gotten out of bed, I went ahead and got him up. I think he had rather stayed though. He just had a hard time with each step of the morning's activities. A couple hours later I laid him back down for a morning nap and he proceeded to sleep for three hours! I kept checking on him, and began to be concerned that he may be coming down with something. However, after the monster nap he seemed refreshed enough to make it through another few hours of the day before needing some more rest.
I probably should have napped during that time this morning, but I had a fun crafty "teeny tot school" project that I was itching to complete. I left the dishes and laundry for the time being and enjoyed getting my creative juices flowing. Creativity is such an essential element of my being, and I am so much happier when I can get a project in now and then! Tennyson is a bit young to free play with this particular activity currently, so we mainly just talked about the pieces. It will be even more fun for him when he can work with it a little better. (And when that time comes I'll be glad I already had it made!). (I'll share the full project on this Friday's "Focused Play Friday" post :) ).
