While self soothing is really important for babies/toddlers, this particular method is driving me a bit crazy. She used to whimper a bit here and there at night, put her thumb back in her mouth, and go back to sleep. Now she squeezes her Gloworm. And I have a monitor right next to my bed. So each time she plays her Gloworm I hear it. Last night she did it a few times around midnight. A few times around 5:45 am, and then again when she got up. It seems like a regression of sorts. She is a good sleeper, and suddenly she uses/needs this crutch. And this particular crutch may be comforting to her, but its keeping me up at night.
So I didnt go out to run this morning, and maybe couldnt have anyway. It snowed a few inches last night and was still snowing when we got up. That would mean that the streets and sidewalks would still be pretty dangerous. We are expecting more snow tonight. If I can find the energy and time, and beat the next snow, maybe I can run tonight. But, we have a winter weather advisory that isnt making it sound too likely:
periodic light snow early this afternoon will increase in intensity late this afternoon and early this evening. Snow will mix with and change to sleet... then rain this evening. Rain will continue overnight with precipitation changing back to snow Wednesday morning.Tomorrow morning could be another issue with snows tonight, which brings me to Thursday. Thursday has a projected high of 14 degrees. Sheesh.
This is the dilemma I knew I would face signing up for a Winter running program. I'm not complaining about that fact. I'm just trying to figure out the best way to get my runs in without freezing to death or treading through a foot of snow. Seems to be a bit of an issue this week ;)
