The 7th Day Is NOT A Day of Rest

I'm sorry, Lord, but I hate Sundays.
Nate always falls asleep on the way home from church.  I try and quietly transfer him from the car to his crib for his afternoon nap.  He immediately starts crying.  Today he's been crying non-stop for 50 mins. (and for those of you with little ones, an 8-month old cries very loudly).  Last Sunday when I went in his room to try and calm him down it only made things worse.  So I'm letting him cry it out because I don't know what else to do.  It makes me very unhappy and cranky.  60 mins. will be my limit before I go in and get him so the countdown is on.  He doesn't do this at all during the week -- only on Sundays.  Go figure.

Update:  He did not sleep.  I got him up.  "I won!" says Nate.

I'm sorry :( I'm no where near the 8 month mark and have no clue as to what to tell you, so i'll have to give you my interior design advice instead- install wall to wall carpeting in his room along with accoustic wallcovering (installed on the ceiling as well), and floor to ceiling drapes with lots and lots of fabric. This should help absorb the sound and bring it down a few decibels at least :) LOL.

So what happened? Did he stop crying before the 60 minutes?

I'd like to tell you that you won't remember these times, but.....I haven't forgotten that Spencer woke up every time I'd try to get him out of his car seat--that's 22 years ago!

Uh that he's won this time, do you think he will do this every Sunday?

Just ditch church every week- that would eliminate the problem!!! You can always watch some preacher on Sunday morning tv :)
