Kemper the destructerator
So we've been fighting the naptime battle of late. Sometimes they go down easily, sometimes they fight it pretty hard and long. Today was one of the latter days. Both boys napped a bit in the car on the way back from their 2 year checkup, which nearly always spells nap trouble. Not that they get particularly upset, they just chat, giggle, jump up and down, whatever, for an hour or so before finally falling asleep.
After the usual hour, I noticed Rowan was no longer chiming in with his comments. Shortly thereafter, Kemper started in with urgent cries of "mommy!", so I went to check on him. He wanted me to give him the combination paddlock that had been thrown (by whom, I'm not sure) onto the floor. I also noticed that he had managed to rip the window shade nearly in half. Sigh. You'd think I would have heard that. Actually, now that I think about it, I did hear a noise that I took to be him making a particularly loud raspberry sound....
