Momma knows best!

I just want to say "I told you so"! I put Camille down for a nap at 1:00 pm. It was apparent when my visiting teachers left at 2:20 pm that she had not gone to sleep. I went to have THE talk with her.
"Camille, it's nap time, so you need to lay down and try to sleep."
"I'm not tired, Momma!" (this part of the conversation goes back and forth for awhile.)

"Nap time isn't over for at least 20 more minutes, so you have to be real quiet."
"Okay, I just want to dress up!"
"You can put on your dress up but have to be quiet. And you may not come out of your room until I come and tell you nap time is over."
"Okay"
She proceeds to dress up. I go downstairs to check email thinking, "She IS tired and WILL be cranky if she doesn't take a nap." After 25 minutes I realize it's VERY quiet and I'd better check on the 2 year old.It made me nervous when I went to check and didn't see her at first. (Her room was clean when we started "nap time". )
Whatta you know...

Ah, we did that yesterday too, except he didn't go to sleep...he trotted on to the kitchen and emptied all my Christmas sprinkles across the floor, then emptied the dog food bin too. *sigh*
