short naps

Have I ever told you that Emma takes short naps?   I mean very very short naps!  20 or 30 mins at the most.  I really can't complain she sleeps on the car and most of the time while out shopping and running errands and best of all she has been sleeping all thru the night for some time now 8pm to 5 or 6 am. So, I really cannot ask for 3 two-hour naps right??  cannot have the perfect child!  haha!!

Well the other day something happened that she took such a long nap I kept waiting for her to wake up. I honestly didn't know what to do with the extra time, not that any time is extra for me but...  I really didn't know what to do!!  I had just vacuum and mopped the floors the day before, I had dinner ready...leftovers really but who cares right? as long as the family is fed! I just decided I'd browse the web and waste time anyways she'd be up soon. No she was still asleep. I thought watching some Netflix you know I deserve some me time now and then. But no no Netflix. I also thought of all the little unfinished things mainly for my etsy shops...cut and glue papers, take pictures and list new items, maybe work on my crochet projects ahh so many unfinished projects I tell you! and she was still napping :/

But why finish something when you can start something new? ay Claudia!!  I remembered that I had some clothespins stashed away and I have been meaning to get my hands on them to make dolls.  I know dressed them up with all the odds and ends.  When I was a little girl I loved sewing my dolls wardrobe.  I remember I also loved paper dolls. Was Emma still breathing?  yeah, she was I had to check every now and then in amazement.  This girl.  I was able to paint the dollies faces and hair, cut the dresses, glue them, crochet a little scarf and even take pictures to show you guys.

I know I got a little carried away with the pictures :/ Great little project that I enjoyed doing. I loved seeing how these girls came out.  Now they are sitting upstairs in Sophia's desk...I'd like to make some more I just need Emma to take longer naps here and there :)  

I really hope your have a great week ahead :)


  1. These little clothespin ladies are so cute! It must have felt strange having free time to do whatever you wanted. :-) I'm glad you got some crafty time for yourself. Maybe Emma will start a new trend going from short naps to long!

  2. Those are adorable wee dolls, they'd be perfect to put on a Christmas tree!

    Jenn was just like Emma in her sleeping patterns and I well remember checking on her repeatedly on those rare days when she took a long nap.


your comments put a smile on my face go ahead leave one! :)
