Nap Time..... I don't think so!!

I think naps are finally a thing of the past for Miss Ayla. Whenever I put her down for nap time, I pretty much know that she is not going to go to sleep, however, I do think it is important for her (and me!) to just relax in her room and have some quiet time at least. Usually she "trashes" her room when she is left alone for nap time. She gets all of her hats and bows out and scatters them everywhere, or she gets every book that she owns and scatters them as well. Honestly, I never know what I will find when I go to check on her at nap time! So with that being said, this is what I found a few days ago when checking in on her at nap time.

Yes people, she is sitting in her dresser drawer!

Is this not H-I-L-A-R-I-O-U-S!! It was so funny that I HAD to run and get my camera when I saw this. You can tell by the look on her face in the first picture that she knew she was doing something that she probably should not be doing! I am telling you, I could not make up the things that my children do! I know I tell you all the time that there is never a dull moment, I am sure you are probably beginning to believe me by now..lol!

Anyway.... thanks for all of the input about the Chi flat iron, I found one on ebay for $70 (including shipping), it was new and in the box, so I figured that was a good deal. Everyone has said that it will last me for years, so that was my justification for buying one..lol!

Also, thank you to Grandma and Grandpa Wright, after I posted on here about John and I forgetting our Anniversary, these showed up at our door a couple of days later. Thank you so much, they are beautiful!

Kimberly said...

thanks for entering my giveaway. When your son is ready to go to college come see me! It's hard! My daughter cried leaving the house on that day, we all cried driving in the car (lol) and the memory I won't ever forgot is when she walked us to the car and she didn't get in with us and we left without her! I thought I just left her in a room with two girls I hardly know!!! All those years of knowing friends, their families, where she was at all time.....then not knowing anything!! COME SEE ME!!:>)))

We are thinking about converting Andrew's bed to a toddler bed now that he is 2 but I just know naptimes will become a chore and he'll be doing the same thing as Ayla. They are so funny though!

Good idea about getting a Chi on ebay. Ebay never even crosses my mind. I paid big bucks for my Chi and it was defective - had a short in it. I just saw that Target is selling Chi's too. Didn't realize that until Wednesday. Have a lovely weekend!

Too funny and cute! How awesome to get flowers from the granparents!!! So sweet. Also, the dressing for the recipe I shared is in a little packet on the dressing aisle of grocery store. YUMMY. Oh, I checked out your sis's blog, she's adorable too!

Sara said...

LOL! Did she watch that one episode of Seinfeld where Kramer had his guests sleeping in Bureau drawers? :)

The joy of kids! :)

Katie said...

ps - had to share, my "word identification" word is UNDIES. HA!

i have walked in on a very similar scene a few times too, nap time/quiet time is soooo good until you open the door and find what they have been into! atleast she is so stinkin' cute that it makes it hard to be mad!

i have been contemplating buying a chi flat iron. let me know what you think when you!!!

have a great weekend!!

My niece is a trip !! I can't believe she is in the drawer. Oh my goodness, you got your hands full lady :) Love ya ! BTW, I posted my buffalo dip recipe !

Hi, Lesli! Yes, I am on vacation still! Ha! :) We have internet in our room so we can easily email my parents who are watching the bambinos! I saw Kelly's link up and tried to think of a post that would work so I just used a link to that one, which I actually posted last month. :)

You will have to let me know how you like that flat iron. I have a cheapie one from Target for like $10, and I never use it because I don't think it works all that great.

The pictures in the dresser are too cute.

I will try and remember to check your sis's blog when I return. I am not wanting to spend tons of time online. Send me a reminder next week sometime, if you think of it!
Happy Friday to you!

Andie said...

So much to say. Thanks for stopping by! We have much in common. I will be back!

Stephanie said...

I LOVE the look on her face in the first picture! She looks so guilty :) Those are hilarious!

We had to give up naps when Michele was about 2 and a half. She just would not stay in her room! Now, we just cuddle together and watch a movie or something, but boy do I miss naps....2 hours of freedom :) That is great that Ayla at least stays in her room!

Beth McC. said...

Thanks for the comments! Your blog is so cute, I love when I find new blog friends!! Your daughters room is PRECIOUS I love her pink and yellow!!!

Robin said...

I cannot believe the dresser drawer didn't break! I have Ikea dressers for my kids, and while they are cute pieces of furniture, they would never hold a kid in them. :) Very cute.

I love your blog and look forward to reading many posts! Nice to meet you!

Jennifer said...

Love your blog! Your children are beautiful! Good call on the CHI...it's the best!

Amanda Negley said...

Thanks for stopping by my site! I too want the nativity set, it is so pretty! I think the best way to start that one is to buy a piece at a time, maybe one every christmas! And that picture of your daughter in the dresser is so funny!!

Jessica said...

OH.MY.GOSH!! That is SOOO funny! I know what you mean about never having a dull moment. I say that our house is like a 3 ring circus, something is ALWAYS going on!! Thank you so much for checking out my collection post and letting me know about your giveaway....we love hair pretties around here!!!

Christensen's said...

ahaha that is too funny!!

Taylor @ The Undomestic Momma said...

She looks so cute just hanging out in her drawer! Too cute!

Hattie said...

That is too funny! My little one Jaxon did this too last month, but he broke his drawers. Luckily we had a spare dresser that match Ethan's bedroom suit or this would have been one mad momma!!!

Maria Lane said...

She is just so pretty!!!! And what a nice surprise you got!!! I love getting flowers!! Have a great frday friend!

Amy said...

how funny! I can't imagine the day when Libbi is old enough to get into everything, but I'm sure it will be here before I know it. Love her bedroom...it's adorable and so is she!

Julie said...

Ayla sitting in her dresser is PRICELESS!

Jamie said...

She is too cute and funny! I think your kids would get along great with Payton!

carissa @ lowercase letters said...

i'm a follower now too! : )

Casey said...

oh how funny! That will be something she will laugh at as an adult. :)

Lori said...

Thank you for leaving me a comment on my blog yesterday. Your daughter is very silly! I too take pictures of every boquet my husband sends me.

Maria said...

Giving up naps...oh I despise it:) Pete is doing the same thing. Mommies need time away from babies and nap time provides that. With out naps, Momma can be really strung out by the time Daddy gets home.

Brandi said...

the platter is from www.picklepantsproducts.com


She came to my house for a pottery party and we had it made.

Brittany Ann said...

How cute is she in that drawer! Hysterical!

That pic of Ayla in the drawer is too cute for words!
