I'd rather be sleeping. Unfortunately, my soon-t0-be four year old would not.
It's an awkward adjustment when little ones decide they don't want a nap anymore. And his body is fighting his will. A longer car trip in the four o'clock hour will inevitably lead to some dozing in the backseat—a habit I dread, because all mothers know a nap that late means a disastrous bedtime.
I've tried all the tricks: Walking his little legs off, requiring quiet time. But it just might be time to accept the inevitable: My good little sleeper will not be sleeping during the daytime any more.
So neither will I.
