The Manic Magpie: Nap Time

Scene 1: In my bedroom. After lunch today. As I’m organizing my closet.

Me (to my 8-year old daughter): “Go take your nap in your room, please. I’ll be there in 5 minutes to check on you.”

Daughter: “Mommy, can I take my nap inside my laundry bag?”

Me: “Inside your what?!

Daughter: “My laundry bag. The one in my room.”

Me (confused; thinking it must be a trick to avoid napping): “How will you manage that? No. I don’t think you’ll be able to sleep…”

Daughter (ever the negotiator): “Check on me after 5 minutes. If I’m not asleep, I’ll move to the bed, okay?”

I give in, certain I’ll win this one.

Scene 2: My daughter’s bedroom. 5 minutes later.
