Considering all I wanted out of this day was to deep clean my house, this day feels like a smashing success. Granted, my day effectively started at 11 am and cleaning didn’t happen until 9 pm, but it got done! And in the meantime, I had so many good experiences with the girls.
As I was getting lunch cleaned up, I heard on the radio that it was 60 degrees outside. I dropped everything, packed the girls in the car and drove to the nearest park.
I have figured out a way to get Lydia to nap. All I have to do is convince her to cuddle with me and boom! she’s out for a good hour or two in the middle of the day. That’s perfect, because I’m generally out of commission for a good couple hours then anyway, so we can just be out of commission together.
