My nearly three-year-old daughter is transitioning away from taking naps. She yawns in the afternoons but isn’t tired enough to actually fall asleep. When she laid down on the couch and pulled a blanket on herself, I held my arms out to her and asked, “Do you want me to carry you to your room for a nap?”
She brushed my hands away and said, “Go do your work.”
Okay. I’ll take that as a “no.”
[Less than a minute later she was off and running again. The toddler form of “power nap,” I suppose.]
Kids will fight that nap as they get older..until they have to do some work then it’s “I’m tired”. 🙂
Oh, yes. I get “I’m tired” from her big sisters already.
Very cute… 🙂
If you want to give me a blanket and offer to carry me to bed, I would totally say “YES!” (Oh, gosh, did that just sound creepy?? Must learn that jokes don’t always convey well over the Internet).
Ha! No worries. I know what you meant. A blanket and a nap always sounds good to me!
