The Complete And Utter Randomness That Is My Life.

Snack Time Is Exhausting. May 15, 2008

I keep thinking that Ellie might be about ready to drop her morning nap, and just go to one long afternoon nap.  Apparently I am wrong.  I gave her a snack, and then we were going to go to the park.  Well, I walked out of the room for a minute because I wanted to check the weather for tomorrow and I noticed that while I was gone Ellie was really quiet.  Hoping she had not choked on a Cheerio I went in to check on her and this is what I saw.

After taking the picture her head slid down the side of the chair and she fell face first into her snack. 


Only One Nap, Ugh. June 27, 2008

I’ve been waiting for the time to come when Ellie would go down to just one nap a day.  It used to be that when she would take two naps per day, that meant that I got to take a nap when she took her first one, and then clean the house when she took her second one.  Well, now I have to fit both of those things into the time it takes her to take one nap.  I know I should consider myself really lucky that I even get to take a nap during the day, but those who know me well know how much I enjoy my sleep. What most people consider a nap is not nearly long enough for me.  Unless I can nap for at least 2 hours, it’s not enough.  I’ve been like this my whole life.  I remember coming home from school and putting on my pajamas (remember this is in the afternoon), and sleeping for a couple of hours before doing my homework.  I need my sleep.  Well, I guess I’m going to have to learn how to get by.  Oh no, I just thought about something awful.  What happens if Keith and I have another child and Ellie and the new one never share the same nap time.  I think that just might be the worst thing ever.
