As so it begins…

I knew it would be a little trying to get into the swing of the school-year schedule, but I didn’t realize just how long the days would become.  We’ve always led busy lives and I knew that having a baby would turn our lives upside down.  I know it’s only been a couple of days and all in all things are going relatively well.  I just need to build my stamina so I can make it through without wanting to turn in at 4:30!!  I suppose it didn’t help that Calder got overly tired tonight and screamed his little head off for about an hour!  Nothing we could do would soothe him.  It’s amazing how powerless I feel when he gets like that.  Eventually, he did give in and snuggled up when I climbed the stairs for the umpteenth time.

 As he sniff-sniff-sniffled with his little post-crying breaths, he relaxed and finally fell into a steady rhythm.  Even though I know I should get a couple miles in on the treadmill tonight, I think I’m going to turn in for now and try to hit the open road tomorrow.
