sunday series/family life: sleep? what is sleep?

Nov 10, 2013


life this week according to instagram

Man, what a week! The theme seemed to be sleep deprivation, which made for a slightly delirious mama and a baby that wasn't her usual chipper self. Tavi went through a growth spurt at the beginning of the week, she kept waking up twice in the night to eat and by the time Wednesday came around it seemed like she had outgrown almost everything in her closet. 

Despite the fact we were all quite tired we made the best of our time together as a family (Jay's days off) and checked out Monopolatte for the first time. It's a chill board game cafe that has over 750 games and a relaxed atmosphere. After looking through the games menu and laughing over the fact that they actually have Cards Against Humanity, we settled on an old classic, Battleship, to go along with our grilled cheese sandwiches and chips. I was legitimately winning until Jay passed Tavi to me and I somehow knocked a few of my ships askew. Based on Jay's previous guesses I tried to put them back in their original spots but... somehow that didn't quite work and we ended up laughing about it and calling it quits. Rematch next week.

We also fit in a trip to the Ottawa Vintage Show today where I managed to snag a couple of beautiful vintage necklaces, but was too slow and missed out on some amazing clothing. You gotta be quick when it comes to these things and in my sleep deprived state I was not!

  10. I just died laughing at the title of the post. Sleep is a rare commodity with little ones isn't? Like my husband says, we are not sleeping for at least the next 10 years of our lives :).

    I am glad you didn't let the sleep deprivation stop you from having fun with the family.
