Something terrifying happened today – Matthew refused to take his morning nap. I think he may be trying to get down to one nap a day. This is not a welcome change in
our my routine 😉 Here I was, all ready to get some birthday prep done while he napped, get his lunch ready, then wake him up and get him dressed for the pool, meet our friends for lunch, and then spend the afternoon at the pool. Instead, I put a hat on (blah), played with him, made his lunch, met our friends for lunch, and then raced home to put him down for a nap that only lasted 1 hour. ONE HOUR!
In his defense, the hour long nap is my fault. I didn’t realize it, but he had a dirty diaper and wanted that changed. Instead, I put him in my lap and nursed him while he rested – before I finally realized the stench was him and not the diaper pail. Poor little guy! He was so, so tired! By the time I realized what the problem was, he was pretty wide awake and the opportunity for more sleep was gone… oh well!
We did go get some birthday prep stuff done after his nap, but we totally missed out on the pool which makes me sad because he loves it so much. But, as B would say, this is a “first world problem,” so I’m over it.
Tomorrow calls for rain. We may be going to the Y then!

You look cute with a hat! 😉
And, yes, first world problem for sure, but still. I understand the feeling. A friend posted something on facebook yesterday that I really connected with, “Some days you wake up, have a plan, and then the day just goes awry. Not a bad ending to the day – just different.”

Thanks! I wear hats way too often these days…
I like that FB post – very, very true!
