Naps are pretty hard to come by these days, but so is time for myself.
I'm still not sure which one is more important.
But yesterday, something pretty amazing happened.
I got both! Yes, I got to sleep and have a little time to myself.
See, I'm starting to get really good at this nap-time routine where both boys fall asleep at the same time.. or around the same time any.
I know that Ronin needs to eat at 11, so if I give Keegan lunch around 1045, he can eat and finish whi.e I'm feeding R. When he's done, he gets his elmo book... it has to be elmo. Then I'll finish feeding R and burp him. As I'm burping him I'll just make the ShhhShhh sound and it makes them both sleepy. It puts them to sleep in a matter of ten minutes (usually way less for Ronin, but he's a professional sleeper these days!)
So there I was, both my boys asleep. I ran a list of things I needed to do through my head... clean the house, work on my blog, some homework, write-up a grocery list, take a nap.
Yep, nothing important.. other than take a nap!
So I dozed off on the couch with my two handsome boys snuggled up. I figured Keegan would just wake me up eventually. But he didn't!!
I woke up about an hour and a half late, amazed that I wasn't falling over from exhaustion.. because that's usually how I wake up. Yes, I know it's backwards. And the boys were still asleep. I knew I had at least a half hour until Ronin would need to eat, and if Iwas lucky, Keegan would sleep just as long.
There was only one problem. Ronin was cemented to my chest where he had fallen asleep while I burped him and Keegan was lead heavy on my leg.
Slowly but surely I crept my way out from underneath them making sure to replace my leg with a pillow for Keegan and gently putting Ronin down in his bassinette.

I snuck down the hall and into the other room easing the dorr open so it didn't creak. I made it!
I couldn't believe it. And they slept for another 30 minutes!
I don't count on that happening too often, but I sure won't complain that it did!!!
