Playing with the Slinky
Sometimes, not often, but sometimes, when we go to put Mabel down for her nap, instead of falling asleep she sits in her bed and talks and croons to herself. Our routine is to let her do this for about twenty minutes--during which time she will often eventually lie down on her own and drift off--but on the occasions when she does not, we pull her back out and proceed to play the fun game of walking up, and then back down, the five flights of stairs in our apartment building. An activity she enjoys immensely and which also wears her out enough to fall asleep when we put her back into her bed afterwards. On this particular day in March we included the added bonus of the slinky.
