My kids are getting to the age where they often could use an afternoon nap but do mostly fine without one, as long as they go to bed earlier at night. Still I try to enforce a few afternoon naps during the week, especially for my youngest one who needs a little more sleep than his brother.
A couple of days ago I managed to put the little one to sleep (well, technically he’s a big boy now he turned four) and I tried to entice his five-year old brother to do the same, but he seemed reluctant to volunteer. So I laid down on my bed with a book and offered him to lay down next to me and take a short nap.
He didn’t go for it and instead decided to go downstairs and draw. 10 minutes later, he came back in the bedroom and put this drawing on the bed next to me.
How cute. I like his sense of humor and he’s a great Batman fan. I quickly found out this drawing was the first of many more. He went back downstairs and several minutes later came back and delivered this drawing.
If you’ve never seen a picture of me, I really look like that. Really, the hair is very accurate. He then went back downstairs and soon came back with this drawing.
It was soon followed by this note, in case I didn’t get the message from the heart drawing.
Aw, I love you too, buddy. But wait, there’s more! This is the final note he delivered to me.
Aw, how could I say no to this? Naptime is over, it’s play time!
