Naptime = soap operas and cookie dough



I love being a stay at home mom. It's very rewarding, but also a lot of work. Most days it's constant driving, cleaning, diaper-changing, nursing, and cooking. Some days I beg Ben to stay home and let me go to work in his place (ha!), but most of the time I wouldn't trade what I do for anything in the world. One of my favorite times during the day is naptime. Grayson and Emma Claire nap at the same time so I usually have at least an hour or two where it's quiet and I can do whatever I want to do without having to check on the children every couple of minutes. Today I had to laugh at myself, though---not long after both of them were down for their naps, I literally sat down on the couch, turned on As the World Turns, propped my feet up on the coffee table, and dug into a bowl of cookie dough that I had just made. AH, what a life!! :)

There is nothing sweeter than a sleeping baby...except a sleeping baby and a sleeping toddler. EC is the cutest little baby burrito ever.
