My just turned 3 yo DD is giving up her nap and I am having a really hard time dealing with it. I used to get a lot done during her nap - quiet time and down time for me as well as chore time. Now that time is evaporating and I don't know how to still get those things done. She won't play alone, and if she does it certainly doesn't last for more than 10 mins or so. She does one of two things - constantly asks me to play with her (like every minute) or wants to be with me while I am trying to do whatever I am trying to do. Which works fine for physical chores - laundry, sweeping, etc. But I can't get her to leave me alone so I can use my brain to do ANYTHING. Making a grocery list, answering email, making a phone call, paying bills, filling out paperwork, etc. I can't do any of these things because she won't let me think. She never stops talking to me all day long!! I don't want to do more tv, I feel like we do enough as it is, so how do I get her to leave me alone?
