All the Sun For You

A mom, two boys, a husband, and a whole lot of adventure!

The Monday Snapshot – Proof!


Here is proof that kids only fall asleep in the car when we DON’T want them to!

I had an OB appointment today (6 week post-delivery check – more on that later) right in the middle of nap time – so I put the boys in the car 1.25 hours before needing to drop Matthew off at the neighbor’s. I was hoping that he would fall asleep like he ALWAYS does in the car (you know – like at 11:30 in morning which is super early for a nap?) but after an hour of driving – there was still no nap.

We suffered the rest of the day because of this.

This photo proves two things – that kids only nap in the car when you want them to stay awake (and then mess up their nap that is supposed to happen later in the day) and that Matthew clearly still needs a daily nap!

Hi, there, I’m Courtney. I never planned to stay home with my kids, but I got sucked into motherhood when my first baby came into our lives after years of infertility and multiple rounds of IVF. His brother followed closely behind, something we didn’t plan on after having such a rough road with achieving parenthood the first time around. My boys are IVF cycle twins, conceived on the same day but born two years and one day apart (they were both transferred on the same day in October, but with two years between them). My boys are the best of friends and my husband is a terrific husband, father, and most importantly… friend. He fully supported my desire to stay home (“I just wanted it to be your idea and not mine, I totally want you to stay home and raise our kids!”) and encourages me in everything I do. I am a lover of projects, spreadsheets, fitness, healthy cooking and eating, crafts, selling my stuff on FB (HA!), and the outdoors. If I’m active, I’m pretty darn happy!

  1. Isa didn’t get her nap at school today (she hasn’t been sleeping there much at all lately) and she was such a mess by 6:30 that I put her down at 7pm and she was passed out in 6 minutes. I guess we’ll see when she wakes up in the morning. 😉

  2. Oh I can totally relate!! Lids always falls asleep when I really don’t want her to.. even if I keep talking to her really loudly, telling her to “Look!” at everything I can… and then she doesn’t sleep when we have a long journey where I need her to or I’ll have a grump on my hands. Ohhhh toddlers!!

  3. Aiden seriously NEVER falls asleep in the car unless we are like 10 minutes from home. Then when we try to take him out of his carseat, he immediately wakes up and has his 2nd wind. I swear, our kiddos know just when to and not sleep in the car 🙂
