A Naptime Adventure

This afternoon something amazing and wonderful happened: Sammy took a nap.

Wonder of wonder, miracle of miracles.

I'm not really sure what happened, I told him to lay down when Jubee went down for her nap, he asked if he could lay down in my bed, I said, "why not? As long as you're quiet," and then he was asleep.  It was pretty much the most amazing thing that could've happened to me today.  No, I'm serious, I could've won the lotto and been less excited.

This is Sam at 12:45pm, when I noticed he was asleep:

This is Sam at 1:45pm:

This is Sam at 2:45pm, which is when I started to get a little nervous about bedtime this evening:

This is Sam at 3:05pm, finally awake:

So, what did I do with all this blissful free time while both kids napped?  I did what every good housewife would do...I cleaned the bathrooms and then watched House Hunters.  That is, I watched House Hunters until about 2pm, when Jubee: 

1. woke up
2. took off her pullup
3. pooped on her bedroom floor 
4. walked into the living room 
5. crawled onto my lap

Bliss gone.  Well, that was the bad news.  The good news is she didn't poop in her pullup.  That's what you call a successful potty training day.

You guys should consider yourselves lucky, I very nearly posted pictures of poo incident, but decided against it last minute.


  1. oh this made me smile! I LOOOOOVE when Ezra takes a long nap like that but it happens very very rarely. he did sleep in til after 8 this morning and I wondered if he was dead.

    I wonder if Sammy is growth spurting?

  2. I don't know, I've considered it, but usually when he's about to have a growth spurt, he gains some weight, and he really hasn't. Of course, he did eat a lot for dinner last night, so maybe he's simply entering phase 1 of growth spurting.
