The days between the excess and exhaustion of the holidays and the dawn of the New Year are strange ones. Most people are pretty much done with the merriment, but it takes that week to really get your head wrapped around the idea of the New Year.
Cormac suggests simply conking out in a sunny spot. Heck…put your feet up while you’re at it.
Don’t lie. You’re feeling jealous right now.
As the book resting under Cormac’s head proclaims, “Oh, the places you’ll go!” in 2012. Once you are able to rouse yourself. And also if your feet aren’t dead asleep from being raised above your heart for two hours.
As I prepare to take Cormac to his toddler gym class this morning, this guest nap from Sam proved to be just the ticket.
Apparently, Waverly is having trouble adjusting to her toddler bed. At least, that’s what Sam says. My take on the situation is that she is just really darn comfortable. In the past, I’ve hazarded a guess at the future occupations of my guest nappers. My first thought here is “trick rider.” You know – like those people who hang upside down off of moving horses?
Half wheel - more good yoga
At very least, this accomplished relaxer knows how to put her feet up. She’ll just have to beware of that head rush when she stands up.
You know – like we old people get every morning.
Cormac is just taunting me, here. Okay – this is not his bed. But it’s like he said “You have failed as a parent. As other toddlers nap in their beds the world over, this afternoon, I will lie here.”
End of Yoga Practice - Inversions
And he’s feeling pretty serene about it. Note the tranquil expression on his face. If only his legs were a little higher, I’d say he was doing his inversion at the end of yoga class. With shoes.
I especially like the synchronized napping he’s got going on with bunny, in the background. Right leg UP…nowwww NAP!
May you experience a peaceful beginning to your pre-holiday week. Go for the full shoulder stand.
