Very Quiet Time

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.

Very quiet time

Oh, and just for fun, here's a picture of June on her way to Meet the Teacher day last week. Is it bad that I let her go to her "Meet the Teacher" day dressed like this? Kinda forgot we needed to hit the grocery store afterwards. Guess I'm favoring free-spirited creativity over order and respect for social mores today. But every devil-princess-fa

Love that little devil-princess-fairy!
