bear’s first carnival!

Carnival 14.Final

As Bear gets more interested in the world around him, Chad and I have been making a big effort to plan fun activities for the weekends! And on Saturday, a perfect possibility for the afternoon just fell into our lap: across the street from our house, the local elementary school was having a carnival! Obviously, we had to pack B into the stroller and check it out.

Except, here’s the thing. We are trying to move him from a two-nap schedule to a one-nap schedule, which means keeping him awake for an extra few hours on the weekends when he would otherwise usually be napping.

Which means that we got Bear packed into the stroller and set out for the carnival, and immediately, like, all of two minutes later, this happened:

Yes. That is our son sleeping through the entire carnival.

He slept through the games and the bake sale and slept through seeing his friends Caroline and Will, slept through little girls in our neighborhood doing a rousing rendition of “Let It Go” on Karaoke (in case you’re thinking that that sounds like the most adorable thing ever, let me tell you: it was.) and slept through an hour of me wandering the streets of our neighborhood, because once your kid falls asleep in the stroller, you commit to strolling for as long as that nap takes.

So, B’s first carnival was sort of a snooze. But fun for mom, at least!

    He’ll move to one nap soon enough. You should enjoy the extra quiet time now, even if it is a tad restricting. 🙂
