Taste of Freedom: The End of Naps

You know how I posted about how Veronica always stays in bed and waits for me to come get her up? Well that has changed. She has tasted freedom. Naptime will never be the same again.

I first discovered that she had been galavanting around the room during naptime when I went in to get her up from a nap and there were a bunch of toys on the floor that hadn’t been there when I left. She binky swore that she didn’t do it. Well the next naptime, she started trying to turn the door knob and get out of her room (which thankfully she can’t really do yet).

Fast forward to yesterday. She got to spend the day with her cousin Joel. They played a lot, she squealed a lot, my ears hurt a lot. Seriously, little girl squealing is painful.

When it came time for naptime, they laid down in bed together and nestled in for a cozy nap. I shut the door and waited. A few seconds later I heard Joel whispering, “Veronica, get back in bed! You’re not supposed to be up!”

Veronica: “Mommy’s shoes!” (apparently I left them in there)

Joel: “Get back in bed!”

Veronica: mfhfhfhhfhf (muffled playing and running around the room)

So the napping in the same room lasted about three minutes. If you have a child who blissfully naps in their own bed without getting up and rummaging around the room, be warned: my child is a bad influence.

    maybe when she said, “mommy shoes,” she saw your feet under the door, spying on her? she is clearly becoming sneakier than you.

    So glad that Veronica and her cousin Joel could spend the day together.Nana does love finding treasures for her grandchild. (soon to be grandchildren) Hopefully after I have this last surgery and am walking well — I will be out and about finding cool things again. Love you guys,
    mom
