please, say it ain’t so…
My newly minted three-year-old has decided naps are for the birds. I’m crushed. I LOVE the occasional nap… like, today, for instance. Today was a great day for a little nap, but my sweet princess would have none of it. I am trying with all my might to teach her the value of some “quiet time”, but at three, it’s a little past her. In the meanwhile, I get frustrated and annoyed and ever more irritable at the thought of me, not asleep.
Any tricks out there that might help??? I can’t leave her with an art-type project at her age. It’s too hot (and she’s too young) to play outdoors unsupervised, and I won’t just stick her in front of a series of cartoons or movies. What works???
