Am I hungry, or tired?
Wednesday, November 14, 2012
My daughter is at the age where she is almost ready to stop having a sleep during the day - but not quite. To manage this, I sometimes time it so we are having a drive, or I walk and push her in the pusher in the early afternoon . . and most of the time, she nods off.
It just occurred to me that quite regularly the last thing she says before she goes to sleep is 'I'm hungry" or "I want something to eat". Sure enough, half a minute later and she is asleep!
Now she is not yet 3 years old - so it is understandable that she might interpret one signal from her body as a different signal. The trouble is, I am not sure that I always get it right either!
