over a year ago we implemented "quiet time" for sienna. she's never been the best nap-taker. so i still needed my mommy time in the middle of the day, where i could get things done at home and take a moment for myself. enter quiet time. she sits quietly (although most days she's talking so loudly to herself, that's it's not very quiet) and reads books, plays with her games, etc. in this case...she reads in her stuffed animal basket. a cozy place indeed! this moment was pre-haircut, as you can see. but it was a must share.
