For the last few weeks, Chickadee has refused to be laid down in her crib for a nap after lunch, even though she still desperately needs the sleep.
And, for the last several weeks, I’ve spent my afternoons like this:
It’s not easy to get stuff done around here with a heavy, sweaty, toddler sleeping in my arms. School is a challenge, and forget laundry or other housework while she’s sleeping. It’s really quite inconvenient. But it’s an inconvenience I’ll gladly take, because I know these days will be gone too quickly (I actually thought they already were!), and I’ll joyfully hold on to every last moment of having a baby sleep on me for as long as I can!
