beans for the win

Oscar has stopped napping in the last couple weeks, but is having some daily quiet time instead.  He can look at books, color, play quietly, or lay down if he’s tired (yeah right!)  Up until today, quiet time has been a bit of a struggle.  He’s come out each day, multiple times, saying he’s not good at quiet time.  Until today.  The solution:  dry beans.

There is only one rule with the beans.  They have to stay on the rug.  I maybe should’ve told him not to put them in his mouth or nose, but being a nearly 4 year old boy, that would just encourage him to see if he could grow a little bean sprout in his nose.
