I wake around the same time each day, eat similar foods, wear similar types of clothes (varying for seasons), do my hair/makeup in the same order, drive the same routes to work, buy the same things at the same stores, etc.
I’m certainly a creature of habit. And Rocco is certainly not. He takes ‘predictable’ and throws it out the window.
For example, Sunday he woke at 6:55. Good boy!
Monday, I woke him at 6:30, knowing it was out first work day leaving him, and he’d need time to unwind.
Well, today, he woke at 4 and 6 a.m., and needed to be let out both times. Then, following the routine we’ve established, he needs playtime because he’s all wired. Then he crashes, eats, hubby (seen in this pic) takes him out and he crashes again before we kiss him goodbye and head out.
My brilliant idea that in the morning I’d be able to work out? HA. So not happening, at least not any time soon. Maybe in a few months when he’s sleeping more regularly and on a schedule but for now, it’s entirely unpredictable … which means I need to be flexible.
Me, flexible. Yikes.
Rocco is teaching me quite a bit … give me strength!
