Naptime is always interesting at the Pre-K. And my Little makes it more interesting, by NEVER SLEEPING ON A NAP MAT. You read that right. After putting 20+ kids down (and you thought your brood was tough! LOL) my son will not get on a nap mat. Yes, all the other kids do, even the 2 year olds. My son? NOT GONNA HAPPEN. I bed, I argue, I even offered treats if he would just sleep on his mat- and then I gave up. My son will only sleep in HIS bed, or his pack and play. This makes travel interesting, as well, haha. But I am trying not to sweat the small stuff. After all, he can’t bring it with him to college, right? (RIGHT?????)
SO! When I got this adorable Monkey Sleeping Bag from HearthSong, one of my very favorite places to shop for children’s gifts, I was thrilled and just beside myself when he brought it to school….to take a nap on. NOT in the pack and play. LOOK!
OK, this may seem like some small thing to some of you. However, I think all of our children have had things they just won’t “budge” on, be it potty training, switching to a bed, giving up a certian toy, not throwing food- you get the idea. They get “stuck” on things now and again. My son loves Jungle Animals (have you seen pictures of his room? LOL all jungle themend!) so I knew he would love the sleeping bag- but I never thought it would get him on a nap mat. But you saw it- I have proof! Hahaha
If your child is an animal lover, they will just love to nap on a Monkey Sleeping Bag at their Pre-K, to have a familiar place to sleep when traveling, or going to grandma’s- any chance they get, really. It has a handle on the back for easy carrying as well. There is also the option of a Cute Kitty. Adorable, yes?
The monkey head is an attached pillow, which is very smart so that your child can’t lose it while at school or traveling about with it. Monkey Sleeping bag comes with a stuffed banana- I suppose the monkey may get hungry!- and I thought it was kind of a silly thing to have. Until, that is, my son stared bringing it even to his regular bed. And the kids at the school all wanted to play with it. what is it about a stuffed banana? The world may never know….but who cares, they have fun with it! And that monkey bag? UH, LOVE IT.
