I'M SLEEPING!

Years ago, before I'd been blursed (that's blessed and cursed) with children of my own, I could only observe. And one of the funniest observations was my nephew, Andrew, being taken to go lay down for a nap that he absolutely did not want to take.

And he started screaming up a storm. At one point, he screamed at the top of his lungs, "I'M SLEEPING!"

And that was with just one little boy. My sister had another boy and I had two boys. Just now they were "laying down" for naps. The laying down consisted of jumping up and down and bashing the crib against the wall by shaking it, and delirious laughter, of course. Then they tried to outdo each other with squealing as loud as they could. And then it got really quiet.

Its the sudden quiet that makes me concerned. I took a peek and they were fine, just actually laying down and getting ready to fall asleep. But, of course, since I opened the door, they are back up and yapping and playing again.

I like when they play together but I really it when they nap at the same time.
