Take a deep breath...Shh...Both girls are napping! Sam shouldn't be down too much longer (oh well) and I just got Katie down.
We went to Chapters/Starbucks with Jo Anne and her girls and capped off the morning with a visit to a playground all together. The girls all had fun running around.
A quick late lunch (sandwiches) and Sam went down for her nap. After Gram and Papa left (they were over to kindly help me install a gate for the basement since we've started using the pressure gate for the girls room) I suggested Silent Reading Time (my favorite of all the reading times!).
This is something I try most often when I'm in the middle of a good book and am desperate to read more. (Cockeyed is the book today, excellent!) Katie was quite agreeable to the Silent Reading Time and flipped through some library books. I did notice her looking tired and after she took a potty break, asked her if she wanted to nap in the big bed. She TOTALLY agreed. I laid down next to her for about 10 minutes and she's sleeping!
I'm blissfully enjoying the silence. Have a good day!
