Well, it's 4 pm and everyone just fell asleep. Birdie fell asleep in her high chair while she was eating her very late lunch and Baby Boy just fell asleep on the nursing pillow, and you know what? I'll take it. Yes it's after 4pm and my 3 yr old toddler who normally wakes up from her nap at this time will probably be a wild maniac at 9pm...but I'll take it because I NEED it. I need a bit of peace and quiet without someone yelling at me for something. It's been one of those days and everyone has been yelling all day long.
Today is the second day it has rained so we're quite crazy around here. Yesterday it rained REALLY bad and I had Bay with me all day at a baby shower an hour away. So Dada was home with Birdie all day long, totally cooped up in the house as it dumped buckets of rain all day long without a single moment of a break and she did not nap all-day-long. That is rough. He was pretty frazzled when I got home and I don't blame him. I've been there. Heck, I live there on a daily basis. I call it Toddlerville and we serve up crazy all day long. So it's good for him to see from time to time what it's like. Even though he totally believes me how hard it can be to have an infant and a toddler. And he always lets me complain. And then he helps...and I don't mean he'll only hold the baby while he's reading motorcycle racing blogs online (which he'll do that too), but he'll like change poopy diapers without me even having to ask him, so he's a total keeper when it comes to baby daddy's. "Did you make a poo poo?...OK, let's go change your diaper" type of thing. God bless him! Not afraid to get up in there.
But getting back to the nap at 4pm thing...I'm not even going as far as moving her from her high chair because I don't want to mess it up. So I'm just letting her take a nap sitting up. Kinda like the naps I take everyday, haha. (While I'm nursing the baby.)
Take it while you can get it.
On that note..the baby just woke up. So I got about 24 minutes. Not bad.
