Tuesdays with Charlie | Play (and rest).

When I picked Charlie up this morning, his folks were happy to report that he'd slept in ... 'til 6:15am.  His usual wake-up time is closer to 5:30, so I wasn't quite sure what our day might bring.  We started off with steamed milk and cereal, but he wanted to get upstairs to "play toys". So we did.
I shared this collage on Instagram with the caption "two minutes of toddler time" - seriously y'all - the first photo (building) was at 8:19am and the last (all knocked down and ready to start over) was at 8:21am. two minutes. 

He proceeded at that pace all morning. More legos, puzzles, a book, a trip to the library and then to Whole Foods (pizza! for lunch)

Then we did our usual nap routine - milk and stories (today he chose The Little Engine that Could and Snow Day) - and then sleep.

52 minutes later he woke up. And I decided we both needed a little more rest. Marmie's lap worked perfectly.

And then - my happy little guy was back again. With enough humor to make funny faces for the photo booth.


Here's to naps! and the complete bliss of being two.

A nap really does wonders-no matter how old you are!

I guess that extra sleep time in the morning gave me extra energy for those blocks!

Two year olds are just so very busy! When Brian was a little guy, we used to say that he had two speeds ---- "fast" and "fast asleep." :-)

I think I'd be napping every moment he was! Those photo booth snaps are great ... and I like your top.

Naps & snuggles are the best!! We are completely into the build it/knock it down thing here, too. I remember my own kids -- much older than toddler age -- building block towers as tall or taller than they were... only to knock them down right away and start again. I guess... "building" is the point of playing with blocks, though a few minutes of appreciation for a well-built tower would be nice. Haha!
