Homebound

We made collages today, mostly with things from the pantry.  I bet you can guess who did the collage and who ate the goodies!

Max rarely takes a nap anymore.  It’s not because he won’t sleep in the afternoon. Oh, he will!  For 2 hours sometimes.  The problem comes at 8 p.m. for bedtime.  If he takes a nap in the afternoon, he will not fall asleep until at least 9:30 or 10 p.m.  Thus, a problem for us.  So we’ve been nixing the naps and Max does just fine during the day and falls asleep at about 8:05 p.m.!   I do, though, ask C and M to take 30 minutes each afternoon apart from each other and do something quietly.  One goes in their bedroom and one in the living room (this has taken practice…).  This forces me to model resting also, so I read or snooze too.  Good discipline for me!   Today, though, Max must have been extra tired because I found him cuddled up in the corner of the couch.  For a kid who is always on the move, this is rare.  So sweet!
