Nap Time Anywhere!

Since we moved upstairs 7 months ago, Cadence doesn't seem to want to take naps. She got even worse when Cooper was born. If I take her into a bedroom to read books, she gets her second wind and goes crazy! So I found that if I put a movie in around 3:30 or 4pm and let her watch it, she will SOMETIMES fall asleep! If we are driving in a car after about 3 for more than 10 minutes, she usually will allow herself to sleep.

This is the problem: If she hasn't taken a nap, we almost can't go anywhere in the evening because she will fall asleep. Sometimes, we carry her through the store sleeping. Other times, we put her in the shopping cart to take a nap. Isn't this lovely?

Cadence sleeping in a cart at Lowe's. Cooper is sleeping in his carseat in a different cart!

We really know how to shop and get A LOT of smiles and laughs as people pass us by admiring our sleeping beauties!

I love that you have a picture of it. (We went through the same thing with my kids.)

Oh...the joys!

We do that a lot with Ryan. However I try and keep him awake, because if he sleeps for very long after 3 than he wants to be up until 10 or 11. Bed time is 8 here, so NO naps after 3!!

Jaxon had decided he does not want to take a nap either....which means no nap for me. I miss naptime!
