I fear that Sam is starting to give up his afternoon nap. On days that he naps, bedtime is incredibly difficult. He’s just not tired! It doesn’t seem to matter what time he goes down for a nap in the afternoon, either. Bedtime consists of our regular routine followed by two hours of listening to him rolling around, singing songs, telling stories to his stuffed animals, etc. Everything BUT sleep is happening in his room. So today, we went to the mall to play at the playground, shop a little, and just generally ride out the crappy weather. He had a blast playing with other little kids his age at the play area.
Now, he’s obviously tired. I’m seeing long, long blinks and crazy-time behavior. He’s now on the couch have rest time, while watching Wild Kratts his new favorite show on PBS. (It’s all about animals. What’s better than that?) I suspect bedtime will be easier tonight. At least, I hope so!
