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.
