Those Weird Things

Sometimes being a parent means you do weird things. I'm seeing more and more of that as Fynn gets older. I can't tell you how many times I've sat in the back seat of the car nursing her in the middle of the parking lot, or done crazy-weird dances in the middle of stores in an attempt to keep her happy. I make face. Weird voices. Whatever it takes to keep her entertained.

The other night it was really hot. It was 94 degrees out (those of you in places like Texas and Florida are probably laughing, but that's crazy hot around here). Our house is annoying in that when it gets really hot out, our upstairs becomes a stuffy heat box. No matter what we do, it's nasty hot. It was way too hot to put Fynn to bed in her crib. 

We decided to put her in our room for the night, in her Pack n Play, since we have AC in our room. Great idea... just one little problem. It was bedtime (actually a little past) and our room was boiling. It takes about an hour for the AC to really cool down our room, and we couldn't wait that long. Thus, we put the pack n play in the spare bedroom downstairs. It took a little longer then usual for her to fall asleep, but she did it.

When it was time for us to go to bed two hours later, we decided we wanted to move her upstairs, since I wasn't comfortable leaving her downstairs by herself all night. I picked up the sleeping baby while Drew wrestled the playpen upstairs. Luckily she went back down pretty easily, and slept pretty well (for her) that night. But this is just another one of those weird things we end up doing now that we have a kid. To be honest, it doesn't even seem that weird to me to do whatever it takes to get her to sleep at night, but it's something I probably would have made fun of people for doing before i had kids and figured out that you just do whatever it takes.
