My daughter is 3 years old. I think she is about ready to transition out of a nap, but quiet time is not working because she is a big talker. She will start to talk quietly (which is frowned upon at her school) and eventually get herself worked up enough to start to try and engage other students. At home, she gets out of bed and takes her books back to bed with her and begins to (LOUDLY) read them to her "friends".
If I try to settle her back down, she becomes engaged with me and it becomes a game. I am just wondering what things do other moms/dads do to have a successful quiet time with a child who clearly has a lot to say!
