When the girls were younger, when Emily was still taking two naps a day, Bella and I would watch Dawson's Creek during that second nap time. We used it as our own little bonding time. And don't worry any of you Dawson's Creek haters, she requested it!
Now we are heading back in the same direction. Emily still needs a daily nap. Bella is getting to the point that she can get by without one.
Today I had them both lay down for their nap. I was cutting and sewing for the STUPID quilt that I decided to make. I needed a break. My fingers were hurting.
I looked into the girls' room and noticed that Bella was just laying there. Since she had been laying there for at least 30 minutes and wasn't sleeping I figured we would have some alone time.
Having two girls so close in age (these two are 14 months apart) it doesn't happen often that I have one on one time with either of them. They are different children when they are by themselves. Example: I don't hear any fighting!
So, while Emily is sleeping, Bella and I are hanging out.
We are laying in my bed watching Enchanted.
We are having some edamame and iced tea as a snack.
It is nice to just be relaxed with one of my girls. It doesn't happen very often.
