Happy Baby Dancing
We went to the local childcare centre today for orientation. I didn't really like it. Not the centre, or the people, more having it right in my face that Sheena won't be Miss Priority while she is in childcare. Hubby and I had always planned to have our kids in childcare while we continue to work, so now that Sheena's health is remarkably better, we're keen to get back on track. Easier said than done. However, like Hubby said, it is only one day a week (until early next year when it will become 3 days). I don't doubt that it will be good for her to be around other babies, but I hope that she is very well cared for in amongst the other 9 babies. She already has a old-friend in the group - Ava from my local mother's group also goes on the same day, but she is interstate at the moment, so couldn't show Sheena the ropes.
About the 5th day in a row of a happy baby!!! Sheena has recently realised that if she does a Happy Baby Dance whenever I am within sight, I will come over and talk to her. She is hilarious. I even joined YouTube today, so that I could show my sister what a changed girl we have on our hands. When Hubby came home from work, Sheena gave him dance as well. He couldn't believe his eyes.
Other than the Happy Baby Dancing the best thing about today, is that I had a 1.5 hour nap this afternoon. Sheena has been waking up at 2am consistently for way too long. It has been the least of our worries, but the interrupted sleep does catch up on you after a while.
