Kalena has started pretending to sleep when we check on her. At nap or bed time if she’s obviously not sleeping we’ll go in to tell her to go to sleep, but as soon as she hears the door open she’ll hurriedly lay down and shut her eyes really tightly. Then she’ll peek out at me from one eye. She’s not a very convincing fake sleeper.
So tell me, you parents of older children, do kids get better at it? Because I remember pretending to sleep when my mom would come in to tell my sisters and I to knock it off with the talking and I remember thinking we were AWESOME at faking sleep. I think maybe I was very wrong about that.
