Bad Mother?

My little T Rex is finally all better from his sinus infection. He's back to playing non-stop - sometimes with me and sometimes on his own. Actually he's pretty good when it comes to playing on his own - at least when he's not sick.

Well, much to my surprise he went into his room, grabbed his blanket, and proceeded to take his nap. Seeing this made me feel so bad for not getting him into his crib sooner.

I can only assume he was simply exhausted. I was cleaning up from lunch when sound ceased - never a good thing with a toddler - generally it means either he's doing something he's not supposed to - like climbing - or sneaking off to GP ("go potty") not in his potty.

This was the scene I walked into

Isn't this just so sad?

Does this make me a bad mother?
(I sure hope not - I sure love being this little guy's mom!)

Haha! Poor little guy! You know what, I think that you are a GREAT MOM for raising such an independent, self-sufficient young man!

Nope not a bad mom - glad he knew what he needed and went for it. :)

I've had kids fall asleep in high chairs, in the playhouse and of course, on the floor! You're a great mom. Kids fall asleep in the funniest places and at sometimes, the most unpredictable moments! I'm sure he enjoyed his nap. My mom said that I used to fall asleep on the floor all the time. Glad that he is feeling better too :)

Not at all! You are a fabulous mother! And, that is a sweet picture! I think it's adorable when a child goes to sleep on his own.
