I think you know where I'm going with this.
I had a few kind friends say things like "My kid never figured out that they could get out of bed and play with toys instead of sleeping. You're good to go! I bet Josie will keep being good!" (You know who you are.) Now, I still like these friends, I do. But to them, I say, YOU WERE SO VERY WRONG.
My little firecracker decided yesterday that she didn't want to take her nap. She mostly just talked and sang and ... oh yeah, she got out of bed and read books. In the past when she didn't fall asleep immediately she would just sit in the bed and talk and sing and maybe look over the edge. Yesterday she took the plunge, and apparently she liked it.
Today at naptime, instead of sleeping, she did THIS:
Does she look penitent to you?
Okay, it might be hard to tell, since she is so adorable, so let me also tell you this. AS I was taking this picture, she turned to me and said -- I kid you not -- "What? Nap."
"What? Nap," indeed.
