Best Nap-time Ever

Today Cormac and I came home right before his nap and I could tell he was ready to go down.  I changed him and just as I was getting him his binkie (reserved only for nap time), my phone rang.  I went into the kitchen to write something down, and heard Cormac heading for the stairs.  I got off the call and he was already at the top of the staircase.  I followed him up and he was laying down in the hall, wiggling and smiling behind his binkie.  I picked him up and started to go back downstairs and he protested, whining and kicking.  I was surprised, so I tried going into his bedroom and asked him, "Do you want to go to bed?"  He grinned at that, so I set him in his crib and he smiled and crawled away from me and put his head down.   He talked to himself for a couple of minutes and drifted off!  Very often, that little boy fights me insistently when I try to put him down for a nap!  What a nice surprise.  I just finished my latest book and since my chores/cleaning are all done, I'm going to relax and enjoy whatever quiet time I have left before that crazy boy wakes up.  Happy Friday to me!
