the nap trap and other crap
hahahaha. I am in a rhyming mood today. My other favorite was an ode to pecans I made up at snack time:
I love your color and the way that you crunch
I am happy to have you here in my lunch
Anyways, the nap trap: I fell in today, and I can't get out. Ruby got up at 11:00 and by the time I got her dressed & ready it was time for lunch. James was practically begging for a nap after they ate so I scrapped our plans for an outing and put him down. He screamed for about 30 seconds and fell asleep. Ruby & I had a nice hour playing and then she started getting cranky. I went to lay her down and she, who goes down easily almost every time, started screaming and having a big fit. I let her go for about 5 minutes and then went up to rock her. She fell right to sleep and I cuddled her for a while, kissing her little neck and sniffing her head. I was thinking how I should cherish these moments...how I won't be able to do this forever. (I would probably throw up if my mom tried to kiss my neck now. HAHAHAHA) This lasted about 5 minutes and then all I could think was, "I want a turkey sandwich, I want a turkey sandwich." I am so sentimental, aren't I? So I laid her down and made my sandwich. I brought it down here to check my email while I ate and guess what? James woke up. He is sitting beside me now, reading and waiting for Ruby to wake up. So we can get out.
