That kid can nap anywhere - except in his own bed! We went to the lake this weekend, and Ephraim fell asleep in Ben's arms in the water. We had a pile of floats on the dock, so Ben set him on the stack and covered him up with a towel. He didn't stir for over an hour. Why then can't he manage to take more than a 15-minute nap at home in his crib with his softest blanket and wearing warm, dry pajamas?!?
What a weekend! When we left on Thursday, the weather was gorgeous and gas was $3.55 a gallon. When we returned home on Sunday, the power was out in our cabin, we were driving on both sides of the road dodging large, downed tree limbs ... and gas was $4.45 a gallon.
I'm a work-at-home mom of thirteen children ranging in age from twenty-six years old to five months old. Eight are home grown and five were adopted internationally (Russia, Guatemala, Vietnam and Ethiopia). We live on an 85-acre farm, and we have home schooled since 1986. My husband is a family physician in solo practice. I manage his practice and file the insurance claims.
