So that's the good news. The bad news is that preparation for nap was quite the event. The following occurred while Sam was supposed to be falling fast asleep to dreamland:
A boy in just his pull up (I let him be).
Later... a naked boy with swim goggles on his head (I take away the goggles, put a pull up on him, and don't bother with the clothes).
Even later... a naked boy (where'd that pull up go again??) who snuck past me while I was putting syd to bed & I later found him by our basement door curled up on the floor asleep. WTH? Let me tell you my heart was racing while I couldn't find him! So I pick him up and put him back in bed naked (screw the diaper... I'll hope for a dry nap).
Then, I hear crying coming from Sydney's room. I look in the video monitor but the camera must have fallen. I quickly realize Sam must be behind this. I run upstairs and find:
A naked boy curled up in Sydney's crib. Apparently she didn't want to be cuddled.
And finally, after one more return to bed, and some rocking for Sydney, both kids are now asleep.
It's much easier going to work. LOL.
P.S. I'm worried about Sam's disappearing tricks. This is the third time this week he's snuck into other rooms without me hearing him only to have me find him curled up somewhere random. I'm going to have to put a gate on his bedroom. The gate won't stop him, he climbs it. But hopefully I'll be able to hear his mischief more before I find the kid outside one day!
