I read a post on Baby Bunching about being stuck at home all day because at least one baby or the other is napping. They called it the Nap Trap and I, too, love that term. I am right in the middle of the nap trap and it is kind of hard. Not too hard, mind you, since I don't really go anywhere, but if I wanted to the nap trap makes it difficult! Collin is not on a napping schedule yet. He can be awake for 1-2 hours and then sleeps for 1-3 hours and the time of the naps are different everyday. Some days I'm lucky and he will be sleeping for all or most of the time that Grant is napping, some days he's awake during Grant's nap. Those days are hard because that means no break for Mommy- and Mommy needs breaks! It will be much easier for me when Collin gets on a regular napping schedule and then I will at least know that for certain times each day all kids will be awake and I can plan outings for those times. For now we just wing it. Outings are usually a spur of the moment thing when Collin wakes up and it's not yet Grant's nap time. But when you add in that Collin has to be fed during his awake times that doesn't leave much time for outings. But, sleeping is a big priority in our house. Our kids are sensitive to to their sleep needs and Collin seems to be following that path too. We work and plan around naps to keep everyone well rested and happy. Someday when I'm running around all crazy taking this, that and the other boy to this, that and the other activity I might long for the days stuck at home with sleeping children. So I surrender to the nap trap and am glad that most days I don't even have to change out of my pj's!
Thought I'd share some pictures of the boys sleeping, because there is nothing sweeter than peacefully sleeping children!
And how sweet is Collin????
