Nap Time

Nowadays Alyce only takes one nap a day. She having only one nap time a day is more accurate. The chances of Alyce actually taking a nap during nap time seems to run about 50/50. Sometimes even if she does take a nap she wakes up in a worse mood then when she went down. Waking up on the wrong side of the bed perhaps?

On the days that Alyce doesn't take a nap we still require her to be in her room for nap time or as we call it quiet time. Mom uses this time to take a nap herself or at least recharge her batteries. During quiet time Alyce stays in her room and plays with the upstairs toys. The floors in her room are kind of creaky so we know when she is moving around and is awake.

Occasionally nap/quiet time will run long or I get home early and my little girl is still upstairs. Yesterday happened to be one of those days. Walking into the door I asked Mom where Alyce was and "upstairs playing" was her response. Mom went on to say that she hadn't heard Alyce in a while and that perhaps she feel asleep. It was time for her to get up so we go upstairs and open her door so that the noise of us moving around will wake her up rather than us doing it. We find doing this helps cut down on her waking up with a foul mood. Opening her door and looking into the room we see that Alyce had in fact fallen asleep in her room. She was laying on the floor, her head under her bed, some floppy disks arranged in a 3 X 3 pattern next to her, and wearing a single snow boot. It was to date the weirdest thing I've seen Alyce do. Sadly I didn't have a camera handy and wasn't able to snap a picture for the permanent record. Instead I will leave a picture of the old weirdest moment.

This picture, taken last April is of Alyce sleeping on our dog's bed. She woke up from her nap and came downstairs then after a few minutes walked into the kitchen, laid on his bed, and went back to sleep. If memory serves she slept there for half an hour.
