Let him sleep, for when he wakes, he will move mountains.

3 June 2015

I love taking photos of Jack while he sleeps.  It is the one time he sits still and he looks so peaceful.
It also means I can take a photo without the blur of him running around like a mad thing!

Naptime to me, when we are at home, is a sacred time.  As soon as he falls asleep - normally in the carrier - I gently put him on the couch and tuck him in with a blanket.  Then I pop the kettle on and either have biscuits, a danish or some toast - depending on what tickles my fancy and what time of day it is.

I use this time to either scroll instragram and facebook, do some admin things or sleep myself.  If a program I fancy is on television I pop that on.  I am lucky if Jack sleeps for an hour.  But that hour of peace is just what I need to recharge my batteries and get ready for the next few hours of running around, playing, entertaining, feeding, laughing and cuddles.

Being a mom is the greatest thing on earth but my gosh it is also the most challenging.
And these nap times keep me sane!
