They're babies, they need their sleep, right?
So why is it that my 2 year old refused to nap, and when he finally does take a nap, he's up until 10 - 11pm?
I wish I knew.
I wish I had an answer.
As I write this it is 1pm. We recently returned from a little child study we do every few months, and, we were in the car...
...they love to sleep in the car.
And now the dilemma is this ( if you can call it a dilemma): both children are sleeping, one still in her car seat, the other on the pile of clean clothes I haven't folded yet. The house is amazingly quiet except for the light clicking of the keys as I type this. The windows are cracked to let int he fabulous day, and the breeze feels nice...and quiet.
IF I wake up Daniel now, he'll surely cry and be cranky. BUT, he'll fall asleep at a decent hour tonight. If I allow him to sleep ( and mind you he's been sick) he'll be up until 10 or 11 tonight.
What do I do?
So far I making a decision to write in here rather than wake the kids, but as each minute passes, I know that means more time tonight. And, since my husband is back in tech for an undergraduate show, he won't be home until late.
But this soda tastes good, and I really am enjoying the quiet.
I don't even want to unbuckle the little lady for fear of rousing her.
Oh wait... I spoke to soon.. the cries have begun. Time to go.
But it's just one of them, giving me a quick chance to post:
THE MESS OF THE DAY...
It was...fun trying to keep Daniel out of this mess. Imagine what would have happened had he tried to eat/play/put in his eyes just one of those.
