Theory vs. Reality

In theory, my 7 week old daughter should be sleeping more in the morning but the reality is that she takes a few 30 minute naps until the afternoon when a big 2-3 hour nap comes roaring at us. She seems to be doing well though; she sleeps really well at night with 2, 4 hour stretches of sleep. Bonus for the parents! Hope I didn’t just jinx myself.

In theory, it’s possible to be in pre-maternity pants already. The reality is that I’m not, but I don’t want to buy clothes for this weird size I am now so in defiance I am wearing my maternity capris. They are the kind that sit low in the hips, not with that stretchy panel that goes up to your breasts. Does it make sense for me to wear them? Not really. Do they look good on me? Not particularly, but I’m really close to getting to pre-baby weight and I just can’t buy pants for right now. So, it’s yoga pants and maternity capris for another month-ish.

In theory, home schooling sounds great. It would give us the freedom to live 6 months in Australia (with husband’s family) and 6 months in the U.S. (with mine). The reality is I haven’t researched it enough to really give it a serious thought but I’m pretty sure I don’t have the patience.

In theory, with all the technological advances out there, couldn’t someone make tele-porting possible? And while they’re at it, make cheese and ice cream with no fat that tastes like the regular stuff?
