Calm After the Storm

After the chaos from the morni

ng, V finally settled. She had that 20 min nap that drove me insane. While Z was napping I let V play for a little and nurse her. Then I wore her in the wrap while I watched Lipstick Jungle. She fell asleep calmly. I missed that. I’m sure she did as well.

I know that having time to play with Z was important and that was the main reason why I started napping her in the swing. It lasted for only a week She loves being close to me and I just love the look on her face when she wakes and looks up at me.

She ended napping for 30 min that time and once more at 430. I felt much better. For bedtime though, she only wanted me and M couldn’t settle her down so I had to leave Z and go to her. While I was out she didn’t wake.

Only at 10pm did she have a cry that was mixed with screaming and I went to her. I let her nurse because I was getting too full. She’s back in the crib now.


I’ve become better at coming up with things/games/activities to keep Z stimulated at home. Z was playing with this first but I let V play while Z was napping. The water play really tired her out. M came home to his 2 naked children playing in the kitchen.


While choosing his books for bedtime, Z said something that made me laugh. For bedtime he is entitled to 3 short books (ie, Sandra Boynton books) or 2 long ones (picture books for 3 and up).

The first choice was For the Love of Soccer by Pele. He was having some trouble choosing his second one so I redirected him to the pile of librtary books. He spotted Diary of a Worm, and said, “Diarrhea?”. I had to correct him. As he was lying in bed getting ready to shut down, he was still saying, “Diarrhean diarrhea”.
