Sweet dreams

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.

  1. This is a hard transition. I feel for you! It gets easier (and bed time may get earlier - yay for that!) as your son starts to adjust to a new schedule. But I sure do still miss nap time....
