Happy Friday! A big thank you to those of you that joined in on the last Friday Chit-Chat. I loved hearing about your newborn essentials – very helpful for my current list-making!
We’re just beginning to settle into a more relaxed summer schedule – less structured home school time, more free time for playing, projects, and swimming, of course.
Even though my girls gave up naps long ago, I still find that we’re drawn to some quiet, downtime in the afternoons. During this time (maybe an hour or so), the girls usually read or draw. I often read, too, or sometimes even nap. Such a luxury!
This week’s question is a two-parter:
At what age did your child give-up his daily nap(s)? Do you continue to have a daily quiet time built into your routine?
My older daughter was never a good napper, and by age 2 I think naps were mostly a thing of the past. My younger daughter, however, would take long naps every day and continued napping into her early preschool years.
We’ve always had a daily quiet time, for my sake and theirs. Some of our favorite quiet time activities have been listening to audio books, puzzles, felt board, doodle drawing books, and stickers.
Your turn to share! Still napping? Favorite quiet time activities? Let’s hear all about it!
