Nap Mat Drama

When I signed Kaden up for school in July I was told he had to have a nap mat. Because of shipping time or making it would maybe take sometime I decided to get it out of the way and make sure we had it ready to go. When Kaden's school supply list came in it wasn't on the list. I had already made it and decided it must have been a mistake.

When we went to Meet the Teacher I didn't see any in the classroom. I asked the teacher which was different from who I registered with she told me the 4 year old class does not have nap time.

I thought at this point I must have heard wrong but in the manual we received even says that parents must provide a nap mat.

The only conclusion I can come up with is that when I signed him up he was still 3 and the 3 year olds do take naps.

Do not get me wrong I love the school and his teacher. I think it was all a misunderstanding. But I am disappointed about all the time I put into it. I have thought about selling it but Kaden picked out the fabric and was very involved in the process. So I have decided to keep it and he can take it on trips with us or can use it at home.

Amy the mat is absolutely beautiful! It can become part of Kaden's 'stories' you know those crazy stories the Gabbards have about their adventurious childhood!

Love ya
