Breakfast of Champions

Typically, LP gets her first food of the day sometime between 8:30 and 9 when she arrives at school. We know that at some point she will have to have breakfast before she leaves the house in the morning, but currently I leave for work around 7 and see no reason to wake her up to nurse her before leaving. Chances are she would then be wide awake and daddy would have to entertain her while he got ready for work - not an ideal situation for either of them.

Anyway, last night we tried to get LP to bed a little earlier than usual. Since she is in the process of transitioning to a new classroom at daycare she has not been napping as much as usual (45 minutes instead of 2.5 hours), so we figured she would be ripe for some rest by 9. While we managed to have her out of the bath by 9, she still nursed until 9:30. And I have the feeling she would have kept going if I had let her, but after 10 minutes of her playing peek-a-boo with my chest (1 minute on, 1 minute off, repeat) I figured it was time to carry her up to her crib.

Now the dilemma, if we start actually getting her to bed earlier, does this mean she will be hungry earlier as well? Will the Hoos have to readjust his schedule to give LP a bottle before bringing her to school? The Horror!

On a related note, the Hoos says that LP seems to know when they arrive at school in the morning. When he goes to get her out of her car seat she starts waving her hands and wriggling to get the arm straps off. So, either she likes school, or she is psyched to get some chow.

Also, I need to gloat. I watched Lost in its entirety last night. No TiVO or DVR required, just a little willpower. And no, I did not watch it through closed eyelids, I can describe the scenes in detail.
