St Patrick's Day 085 

One final quandry: The Littles are napping!  I know, why would this be a big deal? 

You see, since Sunday, we have committed to one nap a day.  If they take a morning nap, they are deciding they don’t need an afternoon nap, which is lots of trouble.  So, we are down to one midday nap.  This nap has been short, (only about 1 1/2 hours) compared to 2 1/2-3 hours worth of naps with two naps), but today we were going to push until 1:00 as I heard this helps them sleep longer. 

I put the girls in their cribs (in separate rooms) with books for a 20 minute quiet time for me to take a shower. I get out and all is silent, yep, you guessed it, they fell asleep at 10:00 am. I was going to commit and not bounce back and forth.

Yep, it is one of those days that I wish that kids would come with an Owner’s Manual!

A couple of those first pictures look like they are singing, "Head and shoulders, knees and TOES, knees and TOES! Eyes, and ears and mouth, and NOSE!...."

Oh Amy! That is so funny... Maybe next time try putting them both in the same crib during your shower! LOL Actually, when mine were that age, I resorted to having them play with toys on the bathroom floor while I showered. Definitely not as peaceful of a shower, but it was short-lived until they were old enough to watch an episode of Word World, Sesame Street, or Veggie Tales on Netflix. :) Have fun though! Before you know it, they will be Miss Independent like my Paigey Pie. She is now fully potty-trained, and insists on putting her own clothes on and buckling her car seat, etc. (with a little help from momma.) Sniff...sniff... where did the time go????
