Social life interrupted

April 25th, 2007

I’ve decided that part of our problem is that we haven’t developed a good routine. I’ve spent a lot of time trying to get the things we need to be comfortable and enjoying the social life here in Antigua with the other mommies (I’m new to the mommy club and have been enjoying membership). I think we need to turn down a few invitations in order really establish a routine. Don’t get me wrong…I’m not going to become a hermit. I need to interact with other grown ups. I just need to make sure we develop a more concrete routine and stick to it a little more closely.

Thank you all for the suggestions via email and comments here. I’m not comfortable letting her cry it out – just my personal choice. As I’ve said, she sleeps through the night so I can’t complain about that. But her naps are short and inconsistent. She usually only sleeps for 30 minutes – twice a day. I don’t feel like that is sufficient. She whines most of the day and I feel like if she got more sleep that might help with the whining too. So I’m about to become a scheduler – so not me. I’m very laid back but that isn’t working for us here. She’s napping less and less able to entertain herself with toys now than she was when we picked her up. I am feeling like a failure at this mom thing – so time for a new tactic. I’ll post some photos later tonight since I know that is why you all come here these days – I’ve already made you go a whole day without any Sabrina cuteness.

Oh and I mentioned our move but didn’t reveal here where we were going – I did tell several of you via email. Here is our new skyline – anyone able to identify it? (No cheating if I told you!)
