Have you come here to play Jesus to the lepers in your head?

A Three-Cup Day

leave a comment »

There is one, unshakable little quirk in taking care of little Casey: if he doesn’t get his afternoon nap in by 4, he’s got to stay up till 6.  Otherwise, he’s up and wide awake at 3 in the morning. 

Sundays make achieving this goal a little difficult to begin with—not sure why, really—but Super Bowl Sunday makes it worse.  We had tried getting him down at 3:45, and at 4:30 he was still screaming his little head off.  His belly was full and his diaper as dry, so I can only assume he just really wanted to see the game. 

Last night, the nachos flowed right along side the root beer as we cheered the Giants to a spectacular finish.  Man, what a game.  Casey, unfortunately, missed most of it.  He conked out at around 5. 

Which means he woke at 3:30 this morning. 

So, I topped out at three cups of coffee to try and slog through the day, up one cup from the norm.  Depending on how the night goes, a fourth cup may eventually make its way into the picture.  It’s not a very good time for making up sleep.
