Lucy doesn't nap. I don't know why...I would love a daily nap, but she doesn't she gave it up this summer. With everyone home it just was impossible to do. She occasionally naps, so I shouldn't say never but most weeks it's zero times.
Last night I put her to bed at 7:30ish. She popped out of bed until 9:00ish (way too late) then was up at 5:30 this morning, again I don't know why. So today she is tired. So tired that I almost didn't take her to story time because I was afraid she would fall asleep in route and then that would blow today's chance of a likely nap.
We went. It was fun. I searched the library for some music I need for the ward Christmas social, with no luck ~bummer, I guess it's not going to be easy. We got a book, a signing time DVD, listened to story time, made a craft and then headed home. I thought she'd fall asleep so I handed her juice box and talked and put on a DVD. She did nod off and I had to take her from the car seat crying and kicking and brought her inside where she was suddenly "not tired". I put her in bed anyway. She barely closed her eyes in the car so I KNOW she's tired.
Not too long after she came out screaming that she was scared. So I picked her up and took her back while asking what she was scared of. She said a snake in her room. What?!? I asked where and she said in her drawer, which was now open but was closed when I left the room the first time.
Well, it seemed unlikely that there was a snake in our house, but maybe. So what was I supposed to do? Leave the room with Lucy and lock the door and wait for a)DH to arrive home or b) a poisonous reptile to get out and stalk our family or look in the drawer? I decided to look. At the first glance there was nothing. Then she told me it was under the toilet paper. I looked and sure enough there was TP in the drawer. Great.
Back to my two choices, although now I added slam the drawer shut and duck tape it until DH got home. I almost chose that but I was afraid he'd take the shot gun to the dresser and then where would we be?
So I picked up the TP. Under it was a plastic smooshing dragon leg, severed from a dragon body in an unfortunate accident previous and obviously left somewhere that caught her eye and scared her. Poor baby. So I showed her it wasn't a snake, threw it away, tucked her again....and now we're trying for a nap. She's tired I know she is, she's delusional: seeing snakes in the house! HA!
she never did nap, but now it's 6:54 and she's out like a light. She did mess up H's costume for tomorrow, fling a puzzle around the room, remove every book off the book shelf, get her finger caught in an umbrella and try on all her clothes...all VERY quietly.
