Life Stories Series: The Story of Naptime? | Clear Lake Childrens Photographer

It's Life Stories time again.  If you miss the previous ones, click here to go through them and find out how they work.

So here is the first sign that things are not going as planned. Those toys were inside that door. Yep, that one right there. You see - it's naptime. That's right, that wonderful time where children go off to rest, while Mommy gets all those things done that just can't happen while little ones are underfoot. This is a sacred time for Mommies, and they do not give it up easily. At least not this mommy, but I think I may have a serious fight on my hands with this little girl.



 Gotcha!  Is it just me or does she look kinda proud of herself?
 
Well some might say that's progress.  The animals have returned to the bed, but there seems to be someone very important missing.



This was her headboard before she ripped it off the wall.  No, she's not superhuman.  It's just padded foam core held to the wall with 3M, but still!


Hmmm....


 Evidently, she thought something good might be in that drawer.


 

Yep, "What's Wrong" is Right!
Wish me luck with future naptimes and the destruction that ensues.  I'm thinking it isn't going to get any easier. 

Now continue on in the circle of great life stories.  Up next is the extremely talented Kristin Hemenway of Images By Kristin in Bellingham, WA.

  5. Unfortunately, this looks all too familiar! HAHA!! What a wonderful thing to capture though. In a few years you'll look at these and forget the frustration and wish her small again!

  8. Dying laughing that she ripped her headboard off the wall! I don't envy you the naptime battles that are sure to follow this one! She's awfully cute even if she won't nap for you!
