when i was 5, and already going to kindergarten, i still had to take naps. i realize now that it was to give my mother a break. today it would be called "quiet time". what saved me, on those long afternoons, was that i was allowed to draw on my walls. in pencil.  standing on my bed as high as i could reach. one drawing i remember was of a birthday cake. covered with candles.

Beautiful Shawn! How wonderful that you were allowed to draw on the walls! I wasn't allowed but, me being me, much to my mother's dismay I did anyway :)
