Saturday afternoon Chez Taylor

Today was the first day we had hoped to forego naps for #4.  Don't get me wrong - when I am home alone all week, I *live* for nap time.  Seriously - two and a half hours of quiet, time to get things done without little fingers "helping" me along the way, a quiet cup of tea, some peaceful computer time.  Who would complain about that?  

Last night, young #4 decided that he had no intentions of going to bed.  Ever.  Whether it had anything to do being "too" rested, well, I have my doubts.  That being said, as we have had a few of those not-so-successful bedtimes as of late, I am willing to try anything at this point.  So today, being a Saturday, we thought we might try a no-nap day.  Unfortunately it turned out to be one of those rainy, cold, cozy days here on the farm.  Perfect for napping...  And although it might be time for him to give up his naps in order to create a smooth, peaceful bedtime, when a 2 year old falls asleep, there is no way I am going to try and keep him awake...

I grabbed this photo of #3 and #4 after #3 put #4 down for a nap on the couch and snuggled him up with his blankie.  My two sweet younger loves~

they are sooo sweet, look at n.4 little hand, I could eat it!!
And as for the napping time, why don't you try just cutting it back a little, instead of two and a half hours let him sleep just for an hour or so... I am going to do the same with Dora soon...

I found your blog through Smattering of Laura. I love the photos you post on your site. Exquisite! I like this post because it is a common issue with my 2 year old. He still needs his nap but it can make bedtime rough. What a juggling act getting the timing right!

Warm memories for me -- those days when they were not quite ready to give up an afternoon nap and the days when they definitely had no intention of it!! A sweet photograph of 2 of your loves and fond memories for those who have gone a little further down the road of motherhood. Thanks for sharing!
