Yes, Ma’am!

Taking a nap

Taking a nap (Photo credit: JohnFinn)


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.]

  1. 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).
