I have come up with the most ingenious, sneaky, smart plan for nap time!
Oh it is so smart I am kicking myself I never thought of it sooner!
Nap time around here is roughly 3 hours after what ever time the kids wake. Any longer and they turn into angry little monsters. I used to feed my kids lunch immediately after their naps. But today nap time came a little later, and this is when my little plan came into fruition.
It started off innocently enough but as the wheels began turning in my head I got deeper and deeper into my thoughts. What if.... now just humor me for a second, please.
What if... I fed the kids a huuuuge yummy fulfilling lunch (and here comes the kicker, get ready) before nap time!?
Oh, how cunning I am!
Their little bellies will be so full they just might sleep longer.
And sleep longer they did. For once, no one woke up grumpy.
I need to continue on this path and hope they never find out.

I would also like to take a moment to let everyone know how much I appreciate my best friend Amanda. She came over today with Wendy's for my lunch, changed about 3 poopy diapers, played with the kids while I made a few phone calls, helped me re-arrange an entire room, moved furniture to the basement for me, and when Trace asked for a bath randomly she instantly plucked him up and gave him and Phoenix a bath. After that she took me to Walmart so I could have a little breather away from the kids.
