Kids will be...

So, Dawna decided that she didn't really want to take a nap this afternoon. It's not too surprising since she slept in till 9, an hour more than usual. I put her down the first time, and about 10 minutes later, I hear her tiptoe out of her room and into the kitchen (mom and dad's house is not good for sneaking around--all the floors echo and squeak). I heard her open the door in the kitchen. "Keyboard please?" she says with those big blue eyes (she was headed to play some music apparently).

"No Dawna, it's nap time." She starts to whimper, so I pick her up to take her back to her bed. Suddenly, everything she sees becomes a reason why she shouldn't have to take a nap.

I walk past the bathroom: "Pee pee potty?" By the changing table: "Diaper please? " By the bookshelf: "Story please?" By Adele's bed: "Dinosaur please, tiger please?"

I set her on the bed and hand her two books, her tiger and her dinosaur. I even give in a little and read her one story. Then, I tell her it's time to go to sleep and exit the room.

a couple minutes later, I hear the door to her room open. I'm in the corner room with the door open. I see her go up on her toes, put her hands over her eyes, and walk past my room... wow... are we so sneaky... about as sneaky as an ostrich with his head in the ground. She walks into the bathroom, picks up her pink hat she left there earlier, then proceeds to tiptoe past my room again with her hands over her eyes. I can barely contain my laughter at this point and am curious to see what she'll do...after a minute, I peek out my door and find her standing in her doorway, hands still over her eyes, pink hat on, smiling to herself... I can just imagine what she was thinking, "haha, mommy! I'm clever!" Silly as it is, it's fun to see her use what little logic she has.

The nap battle went on for an hour longer, but that was the funniest part. Eventually, I conceded and she didn't ever take a nap. She did, however, go to bed early.

And here's a cute little video of Lawrence Xavior giggling a little. This was about a week ago now. Just ignore my goofiness... I was trying to get him to perform... and he did pretty well: Larry X giggles

Love that story! I laughed just as hard when I read it, as I did on the phone! I can picture it perfectly. She is SO adorable.

Lawrence's laugh is so cute! He really has such beautiful, striking features! I can't wait to see him AND HOLD HIM at Burney.

Very cute story, it is still so funny to hear it the second time around. I think I would have loved to be there and see it.
