20 Mar

I’m a little frustrated. I mean, I should have another month to use up these cozy, wintry, baby bear naps. Instead, the Cherry Blossom Festival is on fast-forward and everyone is begging to play at the water table.

What kind of weather is this, people????

Hibernation is ending.

Well, no day appears sunny enough to bring this cub out of his den. My recollection of the sequence of events on the day I took this photo is as follows:

Mom returns home with cranky boy and he climbs on the couch and refuses to remove his coat (see above).

Mom goes to put in a load of laundry and returns to find him sitting on the floor, dazed. Instead of waking up, however, he cuddles up with the nubbly rug and the hardwood floor and commences Nap 2.0.

What? It’s the latest napplication. You know, all the rage.

Those rugs from the big box stores are so...soft?

So that’s how the nap happened.

Spring is coming.

I’m getting sweaty just watching this nap. Did the A/C just come on?

Now excuse me while I go take some allergy pills.



Guest Napper #25 Redux – (un)Seasonal Swing

30 Nov

I don’t mean to go all crazy believing in SCIENCE or anything, but can anyone resist saying “global warming” this week?  Our weather on the east coast yesterday was more like early May than November. Put me in mind of those spring days when you are just so freakin’ glad to get those kids outside, drop them in a swing, and let them take a nap.

Wait. That’s not how it goes.

Not ready for the big swing.

Thanks to Raffaella and Konstantino for finally proving what all moms secretly lament: The park is more exhausting than it is FUN.

But, man, if I could nap in the swings, we’d go every day.

The cold has descended again, though, so we’ll have to put our park naps off! And now to don some outerwear and head out for the day…
