Whenever a fun activity is ending we give Sydney a 5 minute, 2 minute and 1 minute warning. Five more minutes until naptime, two more minutes until we get out of the bathtub, one more minute until we leave the park, etc. This makes the transition very easy-we have learned our lesson on this one!
Sydney has started negotiating with us on this. When time is up she looks at us with those big blue eyes and says, "2 minutes....peas?" When there is one minute left she asks for two minutes. It's pretty funny, but also makes us a bit nervous for what is to come. If she is negotiating already on this, what will she be like in ten years? Clothes, car keys, curfew? eek.

Here are a couple funny pics of Sydney from last night. Yes my child walks around the house half undressed quite often.
