In my old job I would have good days where I felt like I could accomplish anything. These were the days that I would "nail it" - that presentation, that meeting, that project...
In my new job success comes in a slightly different form, but today I nailed it.
There was no crying before the morning nap, the afternoon nap, or bedtime. Not even any moaning or whining. He also took his longest nap ever in his crib - 2 hours and 15 min.
There is a good chance this will never happen again, there is also a strong possibility that it had nothing to do with me. This success can most likely be attributed to a developmental milestone of Jake's, but since he is too young to claim his accomplishment, I will steal it.
So today, because of my motherly intuition, careful eye to tired signs, and flawless pre-nap routine (singing included)...I nailed it.
