Those days are over forever.
Gillian no longer takes an afternoon rest.
This has been consistent for over a week.
I am finally accepting this as reality.
I denied it for a few days.
I was extremely annoyed by it for a while.
I know I had a sweet deal, that she napped for as long as she did.
I know not all 4 year olds are still napping every afternoon.
I knew it wouldn't last forever.
Now I have to move forward in what is.
I may not have quiet time everyday all by myself.
But, now I have time with just Gillian & me, everyday.
And, that's pretty sweet!
Yesterday we sat outside & made jewelry.
The elegant bracelet on her left arm is the one she made.
I made the sloppier trio on her right.
She didn't think I should be in a picture unless I made myself some jewelry.
I was inspired by her bracelet & made my necklace in the same style.
I got into the shot, trying to Embrace the Camera -
