Try To Picture The Grin On My Face As You Read This!

O my fucking gawd.  I re-instituted “quiet time” today, and at the moment, each boy is in his respective room doing whatever they hell they want.  And me?  I’m feeling a little more hope that this summer won’t be so bad after all!

Last summer, when Rogan was still napping and McKade was a raving pre-kindergarten maniac, we started quiet time.  It was a multi-faceted move on my part:

  • Preserving my sanity
  • Preserving Rogan’s nap time
  • Calming McKade down a little as he was losing control towards the end of the day
  • Eventually McKade started napping too and it became obvious that “quiet time” was even more valuable that I had originally thought
  • Allowing the boys to have their own space, in a week-assed attempt to decrease the in-fighting around here
  • Encouraging independent play…something my boys do not seem to know how to do
  • And did I mention the preservation of my own freaking sanity?

So in conclusion, I strongly encourage EVERYONE to partake of the “quiet time” intervention!

Thank you for your attention!

    I love quiet time. It’s the best. Abby either reads, or plays on my computer, and Sophie naps. It is totally necessary, and with another kid coming, it is a sanity saver for me. Great move on your part, smart momma!
