June's first day of four year old preschool was this week, and I hope to find a moment to share more about that soon. In the meantime, yesterday was June's first day of trying "quiet time" instead of an afternoon nap. Yes, she's over four, but I think somehow our kids were just born needing more sleep than the average bear, what can I say? I would've preferred not to have her first week of a new school year coincide with changing up her sleep schedule - that's Parenting 101, right? - but it just happened that way. Everything was getting all wonky, with her taking naps in the afternoon but then popping up out of bed in the evenings and therefore not hitting the hay for good until 9 or even 10. Which only resulted in her really needing that afternoon nap...and so the cycle continued.
So, quiet time it is. Goodbye to my days of having two out of three kids asleep for a little while in the middle of the day.
Well, almost. Here she is on her first attempted day of quiet time.
Oh, and just for fun, here's a picture of June on her way to Meet the Teacher day last week.
Love that little devil-princess-fairy!
