Today I am thankful for nap time.
With a two and a half-year old and a six-week old baby there is not a lot of time in my day to sit down. Nap time for my toddler allows me to relax on the couch, sometimes watching the shows I have recorded or sometimes closing my eyes. Mostly nap time allows me alone time with my infant. Time when I can relax and hold him without having to feed, change or burp him.
Today my toddler slept for about 2 and a half hours allowing me to watch a couple shows holding my baby. I didn’t have any responsibility other than holding him, it was wonderful.
