Mommy really wanted a nap today! I woke up earlier than normal and needed some down time after lunch. I tucked Layla in for her nap and went to my bedroom. I couldn't sleep due to the party in Layla's room. She was yelling and making her stuffed animals talk...whew...she was wearing me out. I had to tell her twice pipe down. Finally, I offered her a choice, to nap and then head to the park to play, or to get up right then. She was so happy about the park she went right to sleep!! Before she drifted off to sleep she yelled "thanks mommy for the choice!" If I'd had only done that 30 minutes before. I could have gotten more rest!
