Perhaps Naps are Overrated

d
I used to dread the day Jolie would outgrow her naps. Now that she has, I'm surprised by how often I find myself looking forward to our afternoons together.

A year from now she'll be in kindergarten. Not off to college, I'm aware, but still...I'm appreciating these final days we have her all to ourselves.

So don't tell Leah, but it's often when she goes to sleep that the real fun begins. Today it was fairy dancing and, at Jolie's request, a "Lizard of Oz tea party," hosted by Dorothy.
