Naptime is such a big deal in this household. The babies are sure its unnecessary. And mommy is sure that it IS! I have learned that keeping to a schedule helps a lot. Their little bodies begin to expect a rest. Thus preparing them to accept the dreaded fact. And reminding them ahead of time that naptime is coming up can help put them the 'slow-down' mode also. And a little while later when they sleepily patter out to cuddle on the couch. They will agree too; that naptime is actually a fairly good idea.
