So, needless to say, when we returned home at 3:00 am Wednesday morning, we all were depleted. I let my sick one sleep in until about 11:30, and decided we would just skip nap time today so she would be able to go to bed at a decent time tonight.
By 3:00 this afternoon, she was begging for a nap, but I was doing my best to keep her awake. Finally, while I was distracted cutting veggies for our veggie soup (which was soooo good, by the way), she took matters into her own hands. I heard her door shut, but continued chopping thinking that if she was quietly distracted, I could get supper finished.
About 15 minutes later, I realized it had been quiet too long & went to discover why. This is what I saw:
She's not yet strong enough to crawl into her crib, so she placed her favorite 'sos' blanket into her baby doll's crib and climbed in to take a nap. If mommy wasn't going to help a sick girl out, that girl just has to take care of herself the best she can! I let her sleep till Aron got home & here she is climbing out of bed after a satisfying siesta.
