That said, there are days now when I get distracted trying to school the older girls, and keep the baby entertained. On these days, poor Bophie's naptime may get lost in the shuffle. Lately Bear has been helping out putting her down for a nap. She gets some reading practice as she reads to Bophie. I also think she benefits from a little down time herself. The picture above is from a day last week where Bear was putting Bophie to sleep... or was that Bophie putting Bear to sleep?
The sister system of napping works most days, but there are some days little Bophie rebels. On those days the back-up is that she crashes wherever she is playing. Which is typically a good thing. However, combine that with the whole potty training thing and there may be trouble. Remember this? At least then it was a rug easily thrown into the wash. Today I found Bophie on the landing of my recently professionally cleaned, carpeted stairs--wearing only undies. Thankfully, I caught her and was able to move her to her bed. I may have more laundry when she wakes, but it sure beats the alternative!
