Nap At Last

For two weeks now, PB has not napped once. There has been not even a hint of one in 14 days. From the child who I thought would nap until high school, it was an abrupt end to an era.

Until today--hooray! We had a fun playdate with a little boy from preschool. They played nicely, not quietly, because of course they're boys. But it wasn't nonstop sweaty-head filled action of many we enter.

I think the two-week hiatus caught up with him. He looked so tired on the way home, but wouldn't close his eyes. When we got home, I asked him if he just wanted to go snuggle in his bed and take a little nap. He said yes, ran to his room, shut the door and almost two hours later now, he's still sleeping.

So I've used the time to do some research on cookbooks. Did I mention that I signed up to be chair of the fundraising cookbook committee at PB's preschool? I have a whole committee and everything. I think it will be fun and a good way to get to know more people.

Although when the head of the parenting committee e-mailed asking me if I need agendas or anything else run off for our first meeting next, I kind of panicked. Does she think we should have one? I may have Type A tendencies, but there are very few occasions I feel call for an agenda. My approach is much more tree-friendly and laid back when it comes to things like this. Don't get me wrong, I'm thorough and I'll stress with the best of them, but I don't need an agenda for something like this...I hope!

I could get excited about doing research on cookbooks. Problem is, I'm the only one in the family that will eat most of the stuff :-) Probably why I got so fat, in the past, of course ;-)

hey, where'd your post on "things I miss" go? It was in my RSS feed but it seems to have gone missing. I wanted to comment on it!

No! Of course you don't need an agenda. :)

I wish I could go back to an age where nap time is still acceptable!

RM, sorry. I didn't mean to push publish, still working on it. Will post it again soon, but first, must tell you all about my accident this weekend!
