She's got it figured out

I was wondering how much Kayla was really going to understand about needing to stay in her bed when it's nap/bed time. Once the railing was removed she would have the freedom to move around and get out of bed when she wanted. I knew this would be a test of wills for both of us to keep her in bed. She's been doing surprisingly well; and then I get my proof yesterday of how well she does understand this concept.

She had a pretty hard time falling asleep at naptime yesterday - took about an hour. That's not because of the bed - she would take that long sometimes in her crib.

So I hear a noise coming from her room which sounds like she's playing with her Little People carnival set and I go to tell her she needs to go back to bed. Before I just barge in her room I peek through the door to see what she's actually doing. She DID get off the bed; however as I was peeking through the door she was already climbing back on the bed (without having seen me at all) with a part of the Little People carnival set in hand. I guess she figured it was ok to get out of bed to get a toy or two to play with as long as she got back in bed with it!

It was too cute so I waited a few minutes before going in and taking her toys away (mean mommy!) and telling her it was time for a nap. A little while later peeking in on her again I see her in bed with other smaller toys that were previously on the floor. My little stinker!
