A couple of days ago, Doane had built another "fort" for the boys, with their big Mega Blocks. However, there isn't much room in there, especially when a couple bigger kids crawl in. So Meliah was sad that there wasn't room for her, when Patrick, Maiclinn, and Dean were in it. Feeling bad for her, I dug in the closet for our Bob the Builder tractor tent, and set it up for her. Then her and Dean abandoned the fort, and started playing in the tent. Meliah finally went to sleep, but I left it up for them to play later. It is a pretty cool thing, even though I'm thinking about selling it at a yard sale this summer.
As cute as she is, little Meliah can fight tooth and nail about going down for a nap. And dummy me, I forgot her nap time today, and by the time I remembered, she was REALLY cranky and whiny. But I got her to lay down by reading her Hand, Hand, Fingers, Thumb and talking to her for a bit. She fell asleep, and she's so adorable sleeping, too! Don't you agree?
