I think it’s safe to say that we’ve all been in the following situation. Your kid’s riding in the backseat, completely exhausted and you’re almost home. Then 5 minutes before you reach your destination, kiddo falls asleep. Despite your best efforts to bring said kiddo in for a nap, your child awakes and thus the long anticipated nap is gone forever. The Bean has been doing this a lot lately. She will fall asleep in the Jeep and even if she’s only passed out for a few minutes, that seems to be all she needs to completely skip her afternoon nap. These days are tough because G and I NEED that naptime like we need food and water. Those 2 hours allow us to get so much done and when they’re skipped it throws the whole day off.
The following video was taken this past Saturday on the way home from soccer practice. We were determined to keep Grace awake until we got home and thanks to "Whoomp! There It Is" by Tag Team, we were able to pull it off! Warning -- Gracie's moms sing in this video… proceed with caution. ;)
