We were at my grandmother's today when nap time rolled around. Instead of packing everyone up and hoofing it back home, I decided to go ahead and try naptime from grandmother's house.
I bet you can imagine exactly how well that went.
Bennett was the easy one. I found a dark, quiet room and he went right down at 1.
After perusing all the guestrooms, I finally picked one for Sterling that seemed the most innocuous. It also happened to be one of the ones with an attached bathroom suite.
I waited outside the door for a few minutes to see if she would go right to sleep or get up and party. The room sounded silent, so I assumed it was safe to go and let her sleep. You know what they say happens when you assume…
That's about right.
About 40 minutes later I hear a high-pitched little voice yelling at the top of her lungs "Bennett eat, yuuuuuuuuuummmm".
I rushed into the room he was sleeping in to find her perched over him in bed, shoving a bar of soap into his mouth.
Evidently she's watched one too many Orbit gum commercials...
His poor little arms were waving like a traffic cop on speed. And of course he was screaming bloody murder.
See the two little divots on the end of that bar of soap? Those would be from where she shoved it against his little gums.
Yep, it's a wine kind of day already ;-)
