It's a "snow day" here, and even though we've been hanging out inside today I made my kids go upstairs for rest time. Miss M gets rest time every day at school, and she needs it. Mister J needs it too, since we are supposed to be at a Christmas get-together tonight - weather and road conditions permitting. Here's my most recent rest-related exchange with my mom-napper:
Mister J: Mom, how much longer?
Me: Please go lay back down. I'll come get you when rest time is over.
Mister J: Mom, when is rest time over?
Me: In a while. (This was about the 4th interruption by a child who was supposed to be resting...)
Mister J: How long is a while?
