CHANGE OF PACE



For the last couple weeks the boy has been napping 2-3 hours in the afternoon. This is a radical change from any time previous when the naps were either non-existent, always in my arms, or only 20-30 minutes long.

I know mentioning this will not jinx things. He's 18 months old now. He's busy. He needs a break from it all. And he's finally settled on a particular cozy blanket as his napping companion. In fact, wise guy that he is, he'll actually bring me my book, my water bottle, and the blanket so I know when it's time.

A lot of other mamas around here are saying that the naps stop at 2-and-a-half. That may be, but we got a late start, and he may just keep this siesta schedule... channeling his inner Spaniard.

My son is 26 months old and still napping 2-3 hours a day too. I hope it doesn't stop anytime soon! I need a break from the running around and tantruming and "mommy, mommy, mommy!" yeesh. Love those 3 hour naps...
