Are you someone who loves routine?
Like someone who wakes up at the same time every morning; does all the same getting ready steps; happily eats the same lunch every day; comes home and follows the same arriving home steps? My husband is that kinda of solid routine kinda guy. And I always thought I was too.
Except I’m totally not. Like come to think of it, I’ve never stuck to a routine of any kind in my whole life. Actually the minute I say I’m going to do XYZ, I almost certainly start craving ABC. As much as I love to research and plan things, and I love order and plans, I hate following a routine to do it. I loved running before I had a baby, but could never follow a running program. I love baking and cooking, but almost always change the recipe as I go. I can never wake up at the same time, and I never do the same things when I come home.
What’s the point of this rant? Well I guess I’m just wondering what our baby will be like? Because honestly, she kinda doesn’t go by all the recommended text book suggested routines, but yet she goes to bed without being fed to sleep or rocked or any fuss - if she is tired, she sleeps - and if she isn’t tired, then there is not a hope of getting her to sleep! Maybe she just isn’t someone who likes a routine, just like her mama?
