Yes, I know he's almost four and that warrants him giving up a nap but I just wish that he's realize that sleeping isn't so bad. He thinks a nap is the worst possible thing he could do. I know he's not going to sleep every day, but it seems like the days where he can barely hold his head up, he doesn't sleep. There are days (like today) when he wakes up in a bad mood and yawns every two seconds. I tried giving him a back massage to help him relax and then I tried laying down with him but he only squirms and jumps and pokes me in the eyeballs. There has been bribery, threatening and pleading...all of which have failed. I am forcing him to have a quiet time for at least one hour so this mother won't implode. I can hear him whimpering from down stairs....like sad tired puppy dog. This could put me over the edge today.
Gee, I wonder where he gets his high strung can't relax kind of behavior from?
