Naptime Fail

by Sierra on April 21, 2010 · 5 comments

in humor

You can tell naptime is a bust when the cute toddler lying next to you in bed goes from pretending to snore loudly to singing this song:

Happy Birthday To You

My mom fired a duck.

I am two and three quarters.

I miss my mom all day.

Hers are at work. I miss hers all day.

Her fired a duck.

(note that I was lying next to her in bed, also trying to nap. She has not missed me all day. Not in the traditional sense, nor with any of the flung toys, errant pee, projectile broccoli or shovels full of sand with which she’s shown me her love so far today.)

She napped 3.5 hours the last two days, and not at all today. I bet she’s taller tomorrow.

    But wait. I want to hear about the part where you fired a duck.

    Yeah. Me too. Must have been one of my other personalities.

    I loved this post. My almost 3-year-old toddler has been napping that way on and off for the last few days. Of course, he doesn’t sing that song to me (and he disapproves of me singing), his method of “sleeping” is to slowly inch down to the end of the bed and hang off. If I look up he pulls back up on the bed and says “Mom will read” or “Mom will sleep.” (ie. I should be reading or sleeping and paying no attention to the toddler behind the curtain.) Thanks for the laugh!
