Nap Time & Wizard of Oz

Saturday, August 13, 2011

Once again Ella is going through a phase where she is trying to do away with her nap. Normally I fight it with everything I have because her naptime is one of my favorite times of the day, the one time each day where I can count on some peace and quiet and a bit of saving grace so to speak. However, this time I've sort of given in and have not forced the issue. I do encourage her each day to take a nap but I've found that the more I try to enforce it the harder and longer she battles against it. I know she still needs one. It's hard for me to accept that a 3 yr old who normally takes a 2-3 hour nap each day can just quit cold turkey without feeling the effects...and by effects I mean meltdowns and tantrums due to tiredness. The boycott has been going on for about two weeks now and I'm beginning to feel like this time it may be for good. Nap time might truly be a thing of the past. Then yesterday around 5:30 pm she fell asleep in the middle of playing on the floor and it was proof that her little body still needs that extra rest each afternoon. At least it made for a cute photo!

And then I captured this cute image. I absolutely love how her baby doll's feet are sticking out right beside hers. I wonder what kind of imaginative play was going on before she gave out to sleep. The leg warmers were entirely her idea which makes it even cuter....

...and totally reminded me of this image from a classic movie! LOL!
