The Secret is Out

I want my kids to take good naps.

No, I need my kids to take good naps.

For my sanity and their safety.

So the other day as I was driving, I glanced in the rear-view mirror and saw that my little dude was starting to fade.

I had to act fast!

If he falls asleep in the car, he does not transfer well into his crib. And we were only minutes away from the house.

He needed a distraction. Something to keep his interest. To keep him awake for a few. minutes. longer.

With my eyes still on the road, I reached over to the passenger seat and grabbed the first thing I could get my hands on.

I called his name and threw whatever-I-had-grabbed at him.

I heard the sound of pages turning.

Sweet! It’s working.

Smiling to myself {since I had such a brilliant solution and all}, I glanced back to check on my little man…

Ummm…

OK, not my finest parenting moment…but hey, at least it kept him awake.

Mission accomplished.

Linking up with The Better Mom today.
