Sleeping baby.

On Tuesday of this past week I was struggling to get Jack to take his second nap. In fact I had been trying for almost an hour. Finally the whines coming for his bedroom stopped. Sweet relief. I opened up the 4th Harry Potter book to relax. 

And then the doorbell rang...


A man running for state representative was advertising himself and consequently waking up my son who had JUST fallen asleep. I wanted to cry...and not vote for him in November. Since I didn't want to curse all unknowing citizens that happened to ring the doorbell at the most inopportune time...

I decided to make a sign for our door. So I downloaded a cute font from (an awesome site with tons of fonts that you can download for personal use - they also have some for sale as well) and came up with this sign:

Ironically enough, the UPS man rang the doorbell while I was making it. I actually said aloud to myself, "You've got to be kidding me." Fortunately, the little guy was so wiped out he slept right through it. Disaster averted.

Forgive the phone pictures, I'm currently camera-less. 

But, I'm happy to say that the next person to come to the door did, in fact, knock instead of ring the doorbell. Mission accomplished.

  1. The sign is cute, but be safe with that idea. You're essentially advertising you have a baby in the house to strangers. It's probably an overreaction, but I always feel vulnerable when someone is at the door and I'm home alone with my kids. Maybe have the sign simply say "please knock" and disable the doorbell. Just my 2 cents. The wreath is adorable. I wish I had an ounce of crafty blood in my body.


We'd love to hear from you all!
