Quiet Time

I have always been an advocate of little ones taking naps.  Not only for their benefit, but for Mom's as well.  Having that couple of hours of quite time to regain my sanity, finish chores, begin dinner prep, ect.  has always been so valuable for me.  My children are happier too.  But as they approach the big 5, their need for naps is not always needed nor welcomed.  On the days that I don't declare that they  actually sleep (depending on their activity level), I have implemented "Quiet Time" where they pick out several books and quietly read in their beds.  They are refreshed and restored and I can still have some quiet moments of peace.  Ahhhh....
