Hailey is at a transition age between needing a nap and not. It really depends on the day, but lately she’s been going without sleeping in the afternoon (usually she still has quiet solo time). Yesterday I almost convinced myself that afternoon snoozes were a thing of the past, but maybe I spoke too soon.
I may be in the minority here, but I love simple tests like this that can reveal information about your health/body. My predictions were confirmed- spring grasses are pretty much trying to kill me (I’ll spare you the pictures), as are cats. I’m slightly allergic to dogs too, but choosing to ignore that one.
We rushed home, where I made the girls smoothies for lunch and contemplated nap time. Kaitlyn had fallen asleep in the car and those 15 minutes had messed with her schedule, so we just blew through nap in favor of hitting up the library.
Kaitlyn had a blow out on the way and true to second-child status, I did not have a cute back up outfit, so unisex onesie it was. We played for a bit and picked out some DVDs and books with CDs (I still LOVE these things).
I tried chatting with my mom as we headed home, but the tantrum brewing in the backseat shut that down pretty fast. Hailey’s discontent grew and her eyes just got crazy as she flailed in her car seat screaming something about I WANT!. At home I finally was able to do what I always pictured- I sent her to her room! I guess we are at that age now. She continued to have a fit for about 2 minutes once reaching her room, then… silence. She passed right out without books, blankets or being tucked in. I guess we aren’t ready to completely forego naps yet.
She wasn’t the only tired one though.
This. Never. Happens. She went from nursing to passed out in about 2 minutes too, then was out cold. I loved it. I snapped a few pictures and videoed her soft snoring, then just sat there and smiled at her in a way that I’m sure would have scared the heck out of her if she woke up and saw me.
I savored the sweet because after about 30 minutes, it was back to chaos.
I sipped a beer which really helped make packing for 3 of us plus a dog tolerable.
I snacked on chips and salsa while I gathered everyone’s beachy things.
The girls, Koda and I leave for the beach today! I’m excited, especially since I somehow managed to make it to the early bootcamp class this morning, so I’m revved and ready to go! But with spotty naps and a solo drive ahead, I’ll still take any luck you want to send my way 😉
What’s the most beautiful beach you’ve ever been to?
