We get it with the occasional super-long nap. I'm guilty of it, myself. We call it "nap hangover."
I agree with PP - I have to just walk away and leave G. alone until she's in better spirits.
I call it defrosting. I give her about 10-15 minutes to come out of it on her own, either in her room or wherever she wants to be. I don't interact with her at all. She comes to me when she's less zombie like.
I make plans to do something after her nap, I include defrosting time in my "what time I can be there" calculations.
Thank you guys - I seriously had no idea this was common. Nothing snaps her out of it - I could offer her a giant ice cream sundae and she would just yell NO.
At least I don't feel bad sitting back and laughing about it now
Yes, it takes Ridge another 15 minutes to full wake up if he falls asleep for a nap.
