The car-ride nap.
This. Drives. Me. CRAZY.
Yes, they look so incredibly peaceful when they're all snuggled up and dozing off in their car seat... but COME ON! That's all the peace and quiet I get for the entire day?! Today, Linna fell asleep on the way home from the Children's Museum at about 11 a.m., and that quick 20-minute nap was the only nap she will have today. I didn't "fight" today's cat-nap in the car, because she has a cold, and she was obviously exhausted. However, any other day that she starts falling asleep in the car, I start singing songs at the top of my lungs, clap my hands, talk to her about all the cars on the road... ANYTHING to keep her from falling asleep! I give her snacks in the car, toys, etc... ANYTHING to keep her awake!
If she asked me for pop/soda in the car, I'd probably cave, just so she wouldn't fall asleep.
Does your little one do this? Linna is now 17-months old and we've finally gotten her transitioned to one LONG (usually) nap a day. I need this break in the day. However, these quick little car naps are slowly going to drive me up the wall.
At what hour is it considered "appropriate" to have a glass of wine??? 3 p.m.???
