Before Glitter arrived, I napped when Critter napped. Every single day.
This may have had something to do with the fact that I had a baby who didn’t sleep through the night until he was nearly ten months old or the fact that I was pregnant shortly thereafter but who knows, really.
Before Glitter arrived, I wondered how I would ever have time to pay attention to two children.
I still don’t know.
But the naptime hours are precious. While Critter is sleeping I am not napping with him because I have a little girl who is bright eyed and bushy tailed and wants to read her book about flowers, okay mom? Sometimes it’s her naptime too and for those hours in the day, as she sleeps on me, everything in my house is still. Her, me, him.
And then there are the sometimes mornings when Glitter sleeps in and Critter and I get to eat breakfast in peace with both hands and play choo choos and Hugglesaurus attack and sit and read in my lap. Nothing in my house is still, but for the shortest time, it is just me and my little bud again.
