Nap time

14 Apr

The boy just woke up from a 3 hour nap. That is not a typo folks, they really slept for 3 whole glorious hours. I sort of think maybe this was because they felt remorse for waking me up at 6:45am this morning and deciding they were ready to start their day of madness well before their ill rested mother was. Well, i sure am rested now! It almost went downhill a few minutes ago but I quickly averted a disastrous post nap time melt down by keeping calm and reacting with hugs instead of a firm voice. It worked. Hooray! Caleb was a little cranky and was whining about wanting milk, normally I might tell him no he has to wait until dinner but instead I made a deal, I told him to drink some juice first and then he could have milk, and I offered a snack and hugged him and thanked him for sleeping so long. What a difference my reaction made. He turned right around and is all smiles now and is happily eating gold fish crackers watching Bubble Guppies with his brother. Hopefully we can keep up this mood until daddy gets home tonight.

I’m woking on a big post recapping our mini vacation to Palm Springs complete with tons of pictures that I’ve been sorting through. I thought I would have been done yesterday but I’ve been so tired and yesterday I decided to sit down at my sewing machine for the first time in over a week to begin piecing my granny squares quilt together. Hoping to have both post and quilt top done tomorrow! Happy Saturday everyone!
