Sleepy Family

I don't know what's going on with our family- we have been so tired lately. Maybe it's the warmer weather.

Sundays are rough days for us because our church time is during MB's afternoon nap. His TWO naps a day are essential to not only his well being but to that of everyone around him. He's not the kind of baby/toddler that will sleep anywhere- he's quite particular. He will sleep in a moving vehicle (car or stroller) and in his OWN crib. He won't even sleep in the pack and play at Grandma's.

Back to the story...Almost on cue, his meltdown started an hour after his nap time (or lack thereof), during Sacrament meeting. We tried taking him out to the hallway but it was no use. The poor guy was so tired! I decided to take him home so HeRoos could enjoy the meeting. Minutes after I put him in the stroller and started walking home, he was zonked out.

We had a fun barbecue at Grandma & Grandpa H's house later that day but MB was still fussy from his naps being thrown off. When we arrived home, we put MB to bed early at 7:45pm. HeRoos and I decided to lay down for just a few minutes. Those few minutes turned into hours. I woke up at 3 am with make-up still on and un-brushed teeth. Yuck! Guess what I did. Yep, rolled over without getting out of bed and slept until 7am. We got 11 hours of sleep!

Nothing like "a sleeping marathon party!!) It sounds like all the participats competed very well and were all winners because of it. I think there are alot of envious non-participants. zzzzzzzzzzz's

I can sympathize with the church vs. nap issue. We struggle with that, too. I see babies/toddlers asleep in their parents arms at church and I wonder how they do it.
