As I mentioned yesterday, we started painting and redoing the girls’ bedroom. They are currently bunking in the same room for the first time in the spare room. It hasn’t been as bad as I thought it would be, but it’s only the first week. The first day they both stayed up playing around for an hour and half with one singing songs and the other yelling, “Quiet!” And from then on, things has worked out better for the both of them in the room. I think it was that initial excitement.
Then our daily quiet time/nap time has been a bit tricky. Elle still naps for a couple hours a day. So I put her in the room by herself during nap time. And usually Kaye will have her quiet time in her room where she read books or play solo. That’s my time to unwind and get some things done without distraction of the girls. Well, since Elle is in the room napping and the other room is currently off limits, Kaye has been hanging around downstairs while I try to get some work done. Not as productive for me since she keeps asking me questions every few minutes. But one of the days I couldn’t hear her playing or reading. Later, I found her asleep between the couch and the LoveSac. I guess all the adjustments have been tiring on her too. Do you see how she is sleeping? I could never fall asleep like that, folded in half.
Once again, this is a picture taken with my iPhone and using the Instagram app which I so love. If you want to follow me on Instagram, search for my user name “simplymodernmom”.
» Tell me… Do your children still take naps? If not, do you have them do quiet times on their own? What are you doing during that time?
Each week I’m seeing a few more people join in on our Project 52: Glimpse Into Motherhood. I’m so happy. Thanks for passing the word around to your friends.

Thanks for sharing it with me and hope you take the time to visit each other’s links too.
This week I just found these two brothers adorable from Our Sweet Peas.
And I love this story from Mama’s Little Coffee Break about a day of cooking and baking with the kids. I used to do that a lot more with Kaye. But then Elle made it harder to do because she likes to fling food across the kitchen.
