NOT SO FAST with that nap dropping business!
I picked Charlie up at school today and thought "Wow, Wes took a long morning nap and Charlie doesn't need a nap I can go to the store now like a normal SAHM instead of joining the insane rush with all the frazzled professional-types at five."
So I loaded everyone into the cart and steered towards the entrance. Charlie carefully smoothed Phent over the little platform by the handle of the shopping cart and laid his head on it. Hmmm. Not tired?
We got everything we needed and as I put Charlie in his carseat he said "I'm very, very tired.
He didn't go to sleep immediately but he was behaving nicely in his room, so I left him there. I laid Wesley down shortly after Charlie and he went to sleep. And then Charlie WENT TO SLEEP. IN HIS ROOM. BY HIMSELF. ASLEEP IN HIS ROOM.
And now it is 4:30, they are both still fast asleep, and I have pumpkin bread in the oven, green bean casserole all ready to go, and my turkey recipe picked out and prepped. And I washed the dishes. And all the breakfast and lunch dishes.
And now I'm watching Oprah and wondering why in the hell I thought I was ever busy before I had kids.
