I admit I have napped when my little girl has been awake. I have trouble sleeping at night so I have times when I get really tired during the happy time in the afternoon when the sun shines in our window. Most of the time she sits next to me and watches a show, or plays on the floor next to me. I also am a very light sleeper, so I will hear anything and I am on the couch in the main room. Now she is older ( 8) she gets up in the morning get some cereal, yogurt or PopTart and will read, play her DS or watch a few cartoons and I will sleep for an hour more. She is a morning child and I have never been able to function before 8. She is very trust worthy and will get me if I am needed. During school though I get up with her so she makes it to the bus on time.
On a funny note, I know what damage she can do. She was 3 almost 4 and would go down for quiet time in the afternoon. I would sneak in a nap because I was working nights. After she would get up she would come in my room and cuddle and wake me up. So one afternoon she woke me up like always and was loving on me and giving me hugs. I was thinking this is the life, my girl is the sweetest thing that ever is. Then I petted Rockie, our dog and noticed she was sticky, in fact there was pink yougert in her fur. I become a bit concerned.
"Honey did you go downstairs while mommy was asleep."
"No," big hug given to me.
"How come Rockie has pink yougert in her fur" I was hopeing it was from lunch. When I wasnt looking.
"blank sweet look" from my daughter.
I was becoming alarmed now and had jumped out of bed and heading downstairs.
" We dont lie to mommy did you go into the refrigerator during quiet time, you will get in trouble if you lie"
I've rounded the cornor to the kicten and there before me was a sight. A destruction that would make a twister proud. The refrigerator door was wide open making sure the kichen stayed nice and cool. Again the yougert( I now hate TRIX pink and blue) was everywhere. There was yougert artwork on the dishwasher, the island counter sides and a trail of italian dressing going around it. Butter was added to this organic art on the dishwasher. Then looking to the heavens to pray for patience(have you ever seen the Simpsons with Homer strangling Bart) I see PINK and BLUE spots all over the ceiling. THE CEILING!!! In closer inspection I find that yougert has been thrown all over. I found that stuff everywhere in places I'm not sure how it got there. For weeks after I found pink or blue dots. Our ceiling bared those marks for several years as it wouldnt wipe off without taking the 1 layer of paint. I had to paint over the spots.
My only advice is lock the refrigerator. :-)
