I’m a big believer that if a kid *really* doesn’t want to do something, and it’s *really* not that important, you should give them a fun out that leaves the ball in their court.

Like today, when my kid *really* didn’t want to take a nap.


Seriously. Are all parents as lucky as me?

PS. It’s totally not as easy as it looks. Try staring straight at one object and not blinking for an entire minute, with something huge like no naps on the line.
