N is for…

Count your blessings, name them one by one…

I’m using Thursday posts to focus on thankfulness — and instead of counting blessings, I’m challenging myself to come up with them alphabetically.  (You can find the rest of the posts in this series here.)

Welcome to N week!

Today I am thankful for….

N is for Nap.

He wasn't allowed to use his "pluggie" (pacifier) off the bed. When he fell asleep leaning over the bed, I draped a blanket over him and took a picture.

Now it’s your turn: what are you thankful for today?

  1. I love the nap picture!

    NNNN I got Nothing for N but I’m thaNkful that FraNk is begiNNiNg to form a plaN for what he waNts to do this fall. Which hopefully will iNclude a job and some thought as to where he waNts to go iN the future.

  2. I swear, the moment I see what letter it is on here, my mind goes completely blank! I could think of nothing for M, and Now I’ve got Nothing for N. (<—–My pathetic attempt to participate.)

  3. Now, never nod
    Now, new needs

    How old was your son when he gave up the binkie? Dave’s grandson is walking around with his firmly in his mouth at 2…

    • Janet, I honestly can’t recall when we finally took the pacifier away (2 kids preferred their fingers; the other 2 liked the plug… er, binkie). It is definitely easier to wean a kid from a pacifier because it isn’t a body part! LOL I was never fond of seeing kids walking around with a plug in their mouths, so I’m pretty sure that I tried to keep it in the crib by the time the kid could walk. Later on, my rule was it had to stay on the bed (bonus: that made naptime more attractive) or the car seat. When the old ones wore out, we didn’t replace them and then they were eventually gone without incident.

  4. Thankful for –Nuts — especially macadamia, cashews, almonds, and peanuts. Then there are a couple of Nutty friends who make me laugh when I need cheering up. Nice Neighbors who come to my aid “just in time.” I’m of an age where Nap times are good. Hugs!
