i mentioned in 10 on tuesday this morning that we are trying to transition teagan to one nap a day. it went well over the long weekend. but. there were a lot of people home = more distractions. there were parties and a loud brother and even louder sister to help him forget it was time to nap. this morning, well, it’s just me and him with the big kids in school and daddy back at work. it started pretty innocent. he grabs his favorite binky, and then his blankie and spreads it out on the floor…
but as soon as he did that, i knew what was coming next. it is sweet and pitiful all at the same time. he starts to love it, bury his face in it and kiss it with a great big MMMMWAH!
quickly, I decided to shift gears and take him with me to go get dressed, gotta leave the house, mom isn’t interesting enough to distract from how tired you are little man. but all he wanted to do was get up on the bed and snuggle his blankie.
poor little man. you just want to sleep. and cuddle. ohhhh, the big blue eyes. you’re killing me….
i feel so mean. cause i know what’s coming next….big blue puppy dog eyes….
i couldn’t take it. i scouped him up and carried him to his crib where he let out a big sigh of relief and went straight to sleep.
i’m so weak.
tomorrow taryn will be home, so we’ll be good. but thursday, i need a plan. the pool, IKEA, something. cause i can’t take the big blue puppy dog eyes.
lol…I know how that goes! 5 months later, I still have to have morning plans to get past that morning nap…
That’s so sad & pathetic….I would cave too.
Poor little man.
how cute is he?! I don’t blame you for caving 🙂
The lovey. Do yourself a favor and get another one (or two) right now and switch them out before blanket number 1 gets worn out and he will only accept that one. Jayden is severely attached to his blanket, which he has lovingly named “Wayne”, and it’s the only only we have since they don’t sell that particular blanket anymore. He freaks out when I have to give Wayne a bath and I actually had to hide from him yesterday while patching up a boo boo Waybe received while we were in Slidell. Picture me in the laundry room, sewing the blanket and a little voice appears in the kitchen “Wayne!!!” then he knocks on the laundry room door! LOL! Get him some replacements soon!!
Oh…this is so sweet! Poor lil’ guy was so tired…just looking at those sleepy eyes makes me tired. I hope the rest of the week works out better…keep us updated!
Nia – we have 3 blankies – thankfully! he loves it when he can get his hands on more than one at a time. i love the name “wayne”…too funny!
too cute! i love that he’s still standing with his head on the floor… good luck on Thursday!
I’ve heard the once-a-day naps are wonderful…a full couple of hours each afternoon to do whatever. We’ll be trying to eliminate the morning nap with our little guy very soon. Good luck! If you come up with any tips, please share!
Once a day naps are great, but who could resist those eyes. I tried to keep my son up and came in the room to find up upside down asleep in the chair. He’s 11 now and seems no worse for the wear.
