Anna had her first swimming lesson today. She loved it of course - it was made evident by the sullen look on her face when she had to get out of the pool after just 30 minutes. She was eager to try all of the new toys and games Miss Alex offered in the pool...as long as she did not have to go under water. She's adamant that she not have to do this (even though I know she wants to - I just think she wants to do it when SHE decides to do it).
Anna also didn't want to take a nap when I wanted her to today. Instead, she asked to read stories and play quietly in her room. After an hour of talking (some to me, some to herself) and playing, I heard her call out "Mommy." I went in to get her a few minutes later and she was fast asleep on the carpet, having decided that she did want to take a nap after all. I snapped a picture with my phone, proof to remind her that she can sleep with lights on (when she wants to)!
