Oh my little love. While we have no walls in our place nap time has been a struggle each day. Till I gave in to putting you in the Ergo each day after lunch and rocking you to sleep with Sarah McLachlan quietly lingering in the background. At first it took a hour to get you down which is a big chunk of my valuable day. But, as you become accustomed to our new routine you’re falling asleep quicker and quicker. It’s creating those good “bonding” vibes felt when you were a new born all over again. I recommend this to every parent of a crazy toddler. Re-centering together.
I can’t help to think each day how it breaks my heart that someday (soon!) you’ll be too big to place in a carrier and slow dance with me safely snuggled to my chest. The amazing/heart breaking part of being a partent are realizations like this.
