As you know, TLM's daytime naps are on the way out. Unless she's poorly, most days she goes willingly to her bed with a couple of books, only to spend the next 30 minutes or so singing, talking and making experimental noises. Then I get her out of bed and she's fine right up until bedtime (a comfortingly early 6.30pm).
But on the few occasions that I've assumed no nap would be forthcoming, and simply kept her up past naptime, TLM is a big grumpy cranky-pants by late afternoon. It can only mean that a simple half hour of entertaining herself whilst cosily horizontal, makes all the difference to her refreshment levels.
It's just a bit off-putting when I'm trying to write an intelligent blog-post, with all that oinking and screeching wafting through the air.
