However, we got this little wooden birdhouse for $5 and we had so much fun painting it all sorts of bright colors ("poko-fots" included). She than went on a search to find the perfect spot...I just had to document it all. Such a simple thing, made her so very happy!
Who knows, maybe this whole no-nap gig will lead to a lot of unnecessary, but super fantastic projects with my little three year old! So I guess with that, I'd say denial is over ruled :-).
