DQ's sleeping problems

One of the things I like about the girl's new daycare is that their teachers have email and send updates throughout the day if they are having any problems. Here is an email from DQs teacher on Monday:

Hi. I was wondering about DQ's sleeping habits over the weekend. She had a really tough time staying awake this morning. Was she up in the night or taking nap at a different time?

Dear Toddler teacher -
No, I can't figure out why she would be tired. Friday night I let her stay up as late as she wanted. I like to do this on the weekends to ensure I get a little extra sleeping in time in the morning.

Saturday we had a busy day, but she did get a nap in. We went to story time at the book store in the morning and then we went straight to the football stadium and tailgated for over 6 hours. She made herself a bed in a truck tailgate. I am sure she had a good quality nap while her parents and grandparents were drinking and eating.

Sunday we spent the morning at the park and then she took a nap curled up in chair while watching a movie. Again, I am sure she had a really good nap - even though the movie Cars is pretty loud. We then went to the library, shopping for shoes and then out for dinner to celebrate the King's birthday.

At night DQ has been sleeping in the same bed with Princess the past few weeks. She doesn't like to sleep alone. I have found that this also streamlines the 'going to bed' process for me. I only have to read books once and the girls stay in their room the entire night. I seems to be a win-win situation. I am sure the girls play in bed for a while, but this way I get a good 1 1/2 hours of "mommy time" at night.

I am sorry she has been so tired, but I really don't see anything out of the ordinary for other 2 year olds...
Sincerely,The Royal Highness
