Learn from my Experience

If you happen to be watching three extra children, who are playing outside. . . .

And if your three-old-son comes in crying and says he wants to take a nap. . . .

When all of the older children come in, and you ask where your son is, before everyone looks outside and in the basement, it might be helpful if you remember that half an hour ago you put him in his room for that nap.

Oh no. I'll bet that was a panicky feeling until you remembered!

Lol, very cute. I've done similar things with my kids too!

BTW, I keep seeing your name around the internet. You're quite prolific with the book (and product) reviews, Jennifer. Wonderful!

Today, I linked to a book you reviewed at Bethany House, "Here For You: Creating A Mother-Daughter Bond That Lasts a Lifetime." It looks excellent.

Blessings, e-Mom

It has been awhile as my little ones who are now in High School--Gotta keep reminding myself that hubby and i laid the grondwork for our chidren a long time ago.

Our Son was always like clockwork. I would look at the clock and say if was rest time go get a book and he would go to bed with a book in his hand. His younger sister was a different story--She would play until she fell asleep.

I would come downstairs after tucking Kevin in for his nap and start to look for sister to put her down for a nap.

I remember all of a sudden it would be eerily quiet and start looking for her. She would be curled up and under s chair in the kitchen or in a ball in her crib.

I never had a difficult time getting either of them to sleep as we went to the park EVERYDAY rain or shine. It was of course for my own sanity, but Routine saved me back then.

:) Too cute! I've had similar lapses in memory that have lead to minor panic.
