Karsyn has given up her afternoon nap.
We now have 'quiet time', which quite honestly, isn't all that quiet.
She stays in her room and plays with her toys, sings songs, plays Barbies, enjoys her dollhouse, talks to her animals, plays in her tent...you name it, she does it during quiet time. Except she does it all really loudly.
And I'm okay with that. She's learning independent play, she's having a good time, and I'm able to get a small amount of work done.
Today during her quiet time, she asked me for crayons and paper. The last time I let her do this she decided to color her carpet 'green like grass', so I was a little apprehensive. She persisted and convinced me that she had 'learned her lesson', so I let her have the items she requested.
