Listen Kalena, you NEVER need my permission to sleep more

Kalena woke up early from her nap today.  And by “early” I mean she slept for 20 minutes.  I wasn’t looking forward to spending the afternoon managing meltdowns especially since that’s what we did all morning.  But I went in anyway and found her lying in her crib, wailing away.  She didn’t stop when she saw me or when I asked her if she wanted to get up.  In fact, it didn’t really matter what I said, she just kept crying.  Finally I asked if she wanted to sleep some more to which she tearfully replied that she did.  I told her that she could, she just had to close her eyes and go back to sleep.  And then SHE DID.  She slept for another hour or so and when she got up again she was back to her cheerful self.  If only she would go back to sleep anytime *I* wanted her to.  Now that would be a good trick.
