Each day I set a certain time of the day to have QUIET TIME. Yes I have learned that certain children need naps and others need quiet time.
         I have one child that HAS TO HAVE IT…not by her choice, but by my choice. She was that baby that got over-stimulated and would just need a few minutes in her play pen to calm down & she was just fine after that. Well still to this day, this SAME child will get over-stimulated from having to think to much or playing too long or WHATEVER…but if she doesn’t get quiet ALONE time, she pokes others, makes crazy silly noises & such, ends up fighting with someone. So each day we have quiet/nap time. AND I LOVE IT!

 I love quiet time. I love that I can have time for myself…this is my sanity time. Where I gather my thoughts, I read books, blog, etc. I love it. I love that I can think about things other than kid stuff. ITS MY TIME!
Since I have been doing this for YEARS…and most of the time we get it each day. Over this time I have learned that I AM JUST LIKE THIS CHILD. If I don’t get quiet time….I go crazy!
I want to scream at the top of my lungs: 
I have almost done it a few times…sigh, but I must be an adult and just bite my tongue while I shove Milano Cookies down my throat…and call it “My Milano moment!”

    I don't know why, but I have never thought about coordinating quiet time for big boy with nap time for baby boy… you. are. genious.
