This is the thought that was running through my mind as I heard Aubrey chatting it up in her crib at 5:15am Sunday morning. Come on, Aubrey, don't you know it's the weekend? Don't you know it's Mommy's day to wake up early with you? How come on Daddy's day to wake up early, you slept in til 7:30?! But I have to say, if I'm going to be up that early on a Sunday, there really is nothing better to wake up to than a cooing, smiling baby. It really is amazing how the second you see your baby smiling at you from their crib, you suddenly forget how early it is and how tired you are. Although, after about five minutes goes by and she starts screaming for her bottle, the exhaustion does seem to find its way back pretty quickly.
Forget about the conventional sleep training books. If somebody could write a sleep training book that also taught you how to train your baby to sleep in on the weekends (without altering their bedtime...), that person would be a MILLIONAIRE.
Looking for a movie to see this weekend with the fam? Consider this...
Okay, how many of you have seen the trailer for Furry Vengeance starring Brooke Shields and Brendan Fraser? Let me just say, this is one of those previews I saw that made me wish I had an eight year old so I could go to the movies and see it!! It is a family comedy in which an ambitious young real estate developer, Dan Sanders, faces off with a band of angry animals when his new housing subdivision pushes too far into a pristine part of the wilderness. It looks hysterical and it has such a good message for kids that focuses on the importance of endangered species and habitat preservation.
You should also check out these activities that offer tools and opportunities for kids to explore the natural areas of their communities and develop skills and deeper knowledge of habitat and animal protection issues. I plan on using these activities in my classroom to create a fun, educational experience for the students while learning about something important. These are great resources for everyone, but if you are a teacher like me, I highly recommend checking them out to use in your classroom.
