When your child sleeps

Jun 25, 2005

I am currently sitting in the back of our SUV with the doors open in our driveway working. The child fell asleep just as we were coming home and is so out of it, she didn’t move when we got out the groceries, the stroller, the dogs.  In fact, she’s so peacefull, we left her. Mr. Flinger says, “How come they don’t make carriers for big kids.” Well, ya see, ‘cause Moms don’t want t haul around 5 year olds in a carrier to and from the car. Instead, they’d rather sit in the back enjoying some sun and blogging.

Amen for the convertable car seat. Guess I can’t do laundry from here, hu. wink


  1. No kidding! I just wish my child would sleep during the day! That other tooth is really kicking my ass.

  2. That was the ONLY way we could get our 2 year old to take a nap when we went on vacation!  When it was time to take a nap, we popped him in the car, took a nice long drive and then drove back when he fell asleep…  left him in the carseat until he woke up!  (With all the windows down of course!  And we were sitting right there on the porch, right next to the car.  It’s a nice excuse to sit back and relax!)

  3. I’ve done that PLENTY of times!  A mom’s gotta do what a mom’s gotta do.  Hope you got lots done while soaking up the sun.

  4. Yeah, I so do that too. I just sit in the car with him and knit or read or sit on the back steps while he sleeps. A mom’s gotta do what a mom’s gotta do!
