My daughter is currently laying on her bed, during our mandatory rest time. I knew she probably wouldn’t actually go to sleep since I started rest time at 12 pm, instead of closer to 1pm as usual. She was incredibly quiet for most of the time, so I was able to get a nap and get started on dinner without worrying about any children.
Just now I
walked tiptoed down to her room to see if she was possibly sleeping. As I neared her bedroom, I heard her chanting “mommy, mommy” almost under her breath. But as I got to her door I realised that she was actually singing “mommy, mommy” to the tune of New Zealand’s national anthem “God Defend New Zealand”. Can’t say I’m not raising a patriotic daughter!
