Sure at nap time i put him in the crib, and say nite nite and walk away. Sure after about 30 seconds it gets really quiet. Well, i always thought he was asleep. Today i crept in to put a toy away that we had left out. What to my surprised eyes appears? A little boy, playing with all his toys; cheerfully chewing on three things at once. He spots me after just a moment. Perhaps he could hear my stunned silence!?! He grabs a rail and struggles to his feet to "chat" at me. I get much daaa-daaaa geeee-geeee and a few girlish squeaks. I suppose if he is going to play quietly, alone in his crib, who am i to argue. For this one, i think i am going to just count my blessings and move on! Peace and quiet, no matter how it comes about, is too rare to quibble over!
