More Adventures in Mommyhood

I’m taking a sanity break from plagiarism checking (yup, Comp II research papers — oh joy!), so here’s a quick entry.

Daniel slept through the night last night!  ::happy snoopy dance::  I changed him into a Huggies Supreme diaper (major-boofy-spendy-diaper — D’s nighttime diaper) and then gave him his 11pm bottle last night.  The next time he fussed and made “I’m waking up now — feed ME” sounds was 5:20am, this morning.  I didn’t know what time it was, but I realized, upon waking, that I didn’t have that “Oh God, it hurts to be awake” feeling — the first time I hadn’t felt that in ten weeks.

Speaking of diapers: D’s caregivers at his daycare change his diapers every 1.5 hours.  It’s their policy to do so.  Now, that’s *alot* of diapers from 7am (when I drop D off) and 4pm (when I usually pick him up).  It can get spendy real fast.  After hours — not an exaggeration — of researching online of good, inexpensive disposable diapers during the day, I’ve settled (for now) on Target’s store-brand diapers as D’s day diapers.  During the night, it’s Huggies Supreme Gentle Care, although I may go back to Pampers Swaddlers (D’s used both of these high-end name brand diapers, generally with positive results).

I’m still skittish about Luvs, ever since the “poop on his back” incident a few weeks earlier.

Anyways… back to grading.

12/13/2007 5:45am update:  Oof, jinx.  D woke up twice during the wee hours, @ 1:50am, and @ 4:40am.  Never a dull moment!

If single-mothering were a paid job, I'd be rich. However, it doesn't, so I write (which doesn't pay the bills) and teach (which does). I'm overly-educated in the liberal arts, but that doesn't hinder my ability to be pragmatic and realistic. YAY.
