Nap time…the best part of the day. Looking at the monitor as your baby or toddler sleeps and finally you can take a breath. You think to yourself, What can I get done during this precious time? or you have no plan and just sit. My favorite is when I actually plan on napping as well. Sometimes your plan works out, but then you hear the cry of your baby or your toddler calling out to you. Ugh!
Nap time didn’t used to be my favorite time. You see…my first born did not like to nap unless it was in our arms bounced around and I mean BOUNCED or a car ride. Initially, he would scream in the car for months, but then he would nap in there. I would drive around until he fell asleep and then go to the drive thru Chick-fil-A or Panera and park and sit for a while. If my little guy did not nap during the day, he would be so fussy! I did whatever I could do to get him to nap.
*Coming soon…how he finally napped!
