Day 6 of #bendlikeacandycane. Funny how you can feel completely different than you look.
On a somewhat related note, I wanted to talk about the danger of expectations. I've heard multiple times that putting a child to bed earlier results in them sleeping later. This is not the case for Henry. In fact when he goes to bed even just a little earlier than normal, he often ends up waking way earlier the next day. Last night he went to bed an hour early and today we started our day at 3am. Well when I'm up at 3am I feel angry. I want to yell at whoever said the "rule" is early to bed means late to rise.
What I must remember is that every one is different and every day is different. Henry may not follow the rule book but that's okay, in fact it should be celebrated because it means he is a beautiful, unique creature. Likewise, I may not bend much, but my body is equally beautiful and unique.
When we can celebrate differences and appreciate that one size has never fit all and never will, we can find contentment with wherever we are.
