Exhausted toddlers are not fun

2 pm today, an hour past Bean-girl's naptime. Bean-girl is rubbing her eyes.

Me: I think you're tired.

Bean: I am not tired.

Me: Then why are you rubbing your eyes?

Bean: (momentarily at a loss). For... For fun!

A little bit later. All attempts to force a nap have been in vain. Bean is crying over some little thing, a sure sign of over-exhausted Bean.

Me: I really really think you're tired.

Bean: I am not tired!

Me: Then why are you crying?

Bean: For fun!
