I tell him, "It's time for nap, pick two books".
I find him with his "two" books.
I start to say, "Now, that's more than two. Let's look and pick out just two. Which ones do you like the best?"
But then, I think to myself, what's the hurry? We have no where to be this afternoon. So what if nap is delayed by 10-15 minutes? Is the schedule more important than "us" time?
Suddenly, his vision of "two books" is much more attractive than mine.
He went down for his nap a bit later. Best decision of the day.
haha we have that in our house as well. For that, we don't read books before naptime anymore. In the morning and before bed. She picks out a ton of books and they are all very long. Takes us an easy hour even with limiting :)ReplyDelete
