How do you know your toddler is ready for a nap?
When he independently climbs into his daddy's lap and lays down.
I don't think he really knew that he was tired because he needed a nap. I think he wanted to snuggle with dad, but the yawns and the rubbing of his eyes were another hint that it was time to get a little rest. I grabbed a book for dad to read to him. Then I scooped him up in my arms and snuggled him all the way to his bed. He was asleep in less than 2 minutes.
