Learning to Multi-Task

Just a quick glimpse into a new summertime tradition. When naptime approaches and Shane is unwilling to cooperate, he frequently calls "Broba"...to be translated "Brother". Thinking that Christian is going to be able to manipulate the mom into allowing Shane to skip naptime magically. So instead, I capitalized on the situation and allowed Christian to participate in the process of getting our stubborn Shane to take a much needed nap. The result, as you can see, was that I got my 6 year old to read a whole book and my 2 year old to fall asleep. SWEET!! Too bad more parenting problems can't be solved that way...a two-for-one deal!!
