Yikes. That nap time didn’t go so well. Joshua is doing awesome in his pack n’ play sleeping in the other room. It’s darker and quieter and so far, he seems to really love it. Last night he was only up three times and once he found his binky and fell back asleep on his own!
Lucas on the other hand. Oh boy. I don’t know what to do. We got his room ready this morning. It’s safe and clean. We talked (again) about sleeping in his bed and how Joshua was going to eventually sleep in the crib. Then came time to put Lucas in his bed and walk out…. it didn’t work. We tried for about an hour to get him to stay in his room and in his bed. By that point he was just over tired, so I put him back in his crib and he fell asleep within minutes.
I don’t know if that just made things worse but I didn’t know what to do! He needs to sleep! Maybe we will try again tonight.
Anyways, earlier this morning, Lucas was full force whining, mis-behaving and driving his mother (me) crazy. I didn’t really feel like going out, because it’s a little wet out and we didn’t have any other plans besides a park visit, but 11 o’ clock hit and I knew it was either get out of the house for some sanity or lock my (did I mention mis-behaving, throwing, and whining?) toddler in his room.
A 5 minute drive to one of our favorite parks was my decision. The only thing I regret about that is not making the decision earlier in the morning!
This kid loves being outside. I guess I forget that sometimes. He was so happy and I swear, was just a perfect angel the whole time. We talked and talked about everything we saw and he was just the perfect kid!
Little did I know that it would turn into a geography lesson!
My house is quiet, I’m off to watch The Bachelorette and do a few chores!
