Now that the days are longer…

Here at Casa de Shean, the afternoon is by far the hardest part of the day. After nap number two, which ends anytime between 1:30 and 2:30, I have the task of keeping May entertained until her bedtime, which falls sometime between 5:30 and 6:00. She’s usually pretty good for the first hour, hour and a half…but then, the witching hour(s) begins, and it’s really difficult to keep her from melting down. I don’t know if she’s bored of her books, toys, of me, but once she gets the gumption to fuss, it’s on.

All of May’s toys are in the living room, so that’s where we camp out for most of the day, but lately, I’ve been letting her run loose in her nursery (what a concept, huh?). She seems to really enjoy it and I enjoy it too! She almost doesn’t notice that I’m there. It lets me be a voyeur!

Here’s a few pictures from our nursery playtime today:


We thought about World Peace.









We tried to mount our sheltie.









When mounting didn't work, we tried our style of patting on the head.










We tried to hide from mama behind the crib.









We played with plugs even though we knew we weren't supposed to.













We gave dirty looks.












In total, this burnt about a half an hour. Thank you, Lord.

    It is truly heartwarming to see the loving look in Tybee’s eyes showing just how much she loves being May’s daily stool and playmate!
    She more loyal than Grayfriars Scottie (goolge this if unfamiliar)

    Remember Mum all good things must come to an end, and you will be moving back to Old Virginnie in a few weeks. So hold on!

    And remember what the good doctor told you: you have the good fortune to have borne a “strong willed” child. So she screams a while each afternoon, it is merely an expression of her assertiveness.

    Count your blessings, surely you would not want a “weak willed” child!

    • It’s true, she’s got spunky spirit and I love it! Some days are harder than others; I’m just trying to keep it all in perspective. She’s a very unique soul and it’s my job to help her cultivate it.
