What a blessing! I love that my almost 3 yr. old still takes naps! What I love even more is that she does it all on her own. She goes down for a "rest" time, which at our house is defined as playing in your room quietly so your little sister can nap. But inevitably Caroline snuggles herself down and eventually naps too. Today was no exception, but this is what I saw when I peeked in on her.

This is what she'd done.

I guess she wanted to sleep in her tent today, because she snuggled herself right down complete with blankie and bear! And yep, that's ketchup still on her face from lunch.

I'm relishing days like today, because all too soon she won't nap, I won't have a break from the craziness, and it'll be one step closer to her becoming a big girl. But for right now I'm going to go enjoy the peace and quiet (and take down the Christmas tree)!
