Joy of Love {day 13: routines}

Morning milk on the couch; it's been a routine for almost 5 years now.  The boys are early risers (and have made me in to an early riser).  Its about thirty minutes of quiet cuddling and cartoons.  The milk buys me just enough quiet time to fix a pot of coffee and pour a cup for myself before joining them.

One of my favorite routines has always been nap time.  It was always like clockwork.  It was my time to get stuff done.  Now they have both started fighting the naps.  Its more work to try to enforce naptime or even "quiet" time then it is to just let them skip naps.  There are a lot of stages and phases that I miss but naptime is the the one I will miss the most.
