Double down naps = A happy afternoon

I’m pretty happy. We’re almost 5 months into life with baby number two and for the first time I have managed putting both girls down, at the same time, and they’re sleeping for over an hour.

And I got a snooze. Booyakasha!

What’s more I may even get time to sneak in a magazine article on food in the twin cities!

Today’s trick to happy napping :
– Later bedtime for daughter 1, at 2pm
– Not letting daughter 2 sleep too long in carseat after school pick up
– Reading books in our bed with them both, D1 reading with me, D2 doing tummy time and rolling around and generally burning herself out.

  1. Good job on the naps. It’s all about finding the rhythm of family, right? My problem is that once I get the dance steps right, suddenly it all changes into a new phase. LOL! It sure keeps me on my toes.

    I was about to recommend METRO magazine because I liked the food articles better than MplsStPaul, but I just went to look for it online and found they are suspending publication for a while. Oh well.

      • Thank you, there are pretty moments and then the not so pretty ones. I try to make the former more prevalent than the latter!

    • Yes – it never stops changing does it? It’s nice when you find a sweet spot for a while tho!

      Re the magazine – it’s the first time I’ve bought a mag in a long time, I like keeping up-to-date on all those tasty looking food offerings around town, for one of those days that we might be able to organize a date night!
