I Spy With My Little Eye.......

.... a little girl who FINALLY fell asleep! The little girl usually and when I say usually I mean never. She usually never falls asleep during nap time. But I still make her go to her room and I get to have my quiet time. She is suppose to stay on her bed and quiet. I keep thinking that if she stays on her bed then eventually she will fall asleep at some point. Anyway, the other day she was having "nap time" in her room. After about 2 hours I could kind of hear her by her door. I told her to go back to her bed it wasn't time to get up yet. I know, 2 hours, I was going to let her get up in a few more minutes. So, I noticed that it got real quiet. I went to check on her and this is what I found. Asleep on the floor with jeans on. She went to her room earlier with a completely different outfit! As you can see in the background, she didn't just stay on her bed as told. To think Ella doesn't mind me, crazy, I know!!


This is a picture from another day. Before she went to her room for "nap time" it was completely cleaned up. Hard to believe but it was. This is the destruction of Ella. For some reason now she pulls her curtains to the side. Probably so she can keep it nice and bright. It can't get too dark, she might fall asleep!! Oh, so much for her staying on her bed!!

What a girl!

Hey, I have those moments throughout the week. You make me feel so much better, to know I am not alone in the trouble I have during the week.

Wow, Katie...I might have to start trying to make Blayre go and lay down or be quiet for a while. I can't remember the last time she took a nap and wasn't in the car! You have one beautiful and creative little girl on your hands!

Isn't it scary that they can destroy a room in a matter of seconds but it takes us hours to clean it back up. I'm glad to know she too changes her clothes throughout the day. Kamryn will go thru ten outfits a day. It makes keeping up with laundry impossible.

I do the same thing with Trevor. He's starting to get out of the nap stage, but he will stay in his room until I go and get him. It's amazing how fast they can destroy a room...like little tornadoes!

This story sounds familiar. We did "quiet time" for quite a while after Hollace quit actually taking naps. The changing outfits is a daily occurance around here too. At least 5 outfits a day.

My brother does this kind of thing, even though he's 16. He is supposed to go to bed around 10 or 11 at night, but he'll stay up till like 4 in the morning playing with his remote-controlled things and watching TV and doing whatever.
I love Ella's little table and chair set. It's so cute! Very girly.
