Never a Dull Moment

I've got some catching up to do on our November bucket list progress, a December bucket list to post, and several fun Christmas photos already.  But I just can't seem to get around to blogging because.... there is never a dull moment around here.  Let me just share a little of my last 48 hours. 

Our once decorated Christmas tree.  Toppled.

And naptimes.  Oh, naptimes.  Clara has always been a pretty decent sleeper, but she has really been testing us lately.  The past couple of days, she has just flat-out refused to lie down.   And I have flat-out refused to let her get up.  The nap standoff is brutal, and today it ended like this.  I'm counting it as a victory (I bet she is too).

Please remind me that her stubborn, strong willed personality is why she is alive today.  Please remind me that I'd rather have a strong-willed child than a weak-willed one.  Please remind me that this is going to happen over and over and over and over again for the next, oh 17 years or so.  

Okay, got it.  Thanks.
