Home from vacation . . . now we can rest!
We returned from our vacation yesterday. We had a great time, but taking a 16-month-old on vacation doesn’t make for a restful break from the everyday. Regardless when Keegan went to bed, he was always up right at 7:00 a.m. — with the sun. Oh joy. And with the other 3 kids there, he was too excited to nap well. Between wanting to constantly be around the older kids and the kids’ inability to regulate the volumes of their voices — like most kids their age — nap times were few and far between. Despite our attempts to reason with him — other parents reason with their toddlers, right? — Keegan would not submit to his exhaustion and just sleep. So crankily, Kee trudged through the day dragging his mom and dad with him. Our respites did come though when he went to bed for the night, and we could enjoy some cold beverages in relative peace and quiet.

My friend, Brooks, isn’t impressed.
