Just Let That Child Nap!!

Running errands today took longer than expected. Poor LittleMan was hours overdue for his nap but was hanging in there like a trooper.

Hubbie and I ran in to TRU to take a quick look at strollers. It was immediately evident that they did not have what we were looking for. We turned to leave only to see LittleMan headed for a nearby aisle.

We followed him--to find him scaling the side of one of the display cribs in an attempt to lay down.

Oh honey! we told him, are you that tired?

His response? Sleep here.

We had to pry his fingers from the bars to get him off the side of the crib.

We put him in the car and took him directly home.

Poor feller.

I wish we could get mine to nap at all without a battle.

Toys'r' Us is my nemesis. I always come out of there with some piece of plastic crap that we don't likely need.

Aw.. how sweet is that? Bless him!

I had trouble getting mine to sleep at all, too. But I know exactly how Little Man feels. I can identify with that on a very personal ... level .. zz z .. zz . z

Oh, sweet, sweet LittleMan!

OK, I just want to kiss him right now. Will you do that for me? Big smooch. Right on the forehead. Thanks.

@AFM: I kid you not when I say we have prayed for a child like him. To every god and goddess who would listen. I now have a child who naps. I don't know who has my soul, but it worked.

@Jay: I know. Some days I wish someone would force me to take a nap. I wouldn't protest.

@Hollystar: I am sorry you are so congested. Maybe puking will help get rid of the congestion?

@CMGD: Done!

1. Little Man is the damn best! I would have napped with him.

2. I HATE TRU. Hate it. I would rather have a Brazillian wax in public than go there. It's torturous!
