What is that noise?!
Is it a possessed Demon?
Is it a monster?
…nope. It’s the toddler.
Honestly, this kid was only 2 in March and hasn’t needed a daytime nap since 20 months old….20 months!!!! Utterly outrageous behaviour.
People, listen up. Make the most of nap times. It might dictate your life schedule for a while but when the good times come to an end, life is never the same again. Nor is your sanity.
The toddler had 45 minutes sleep this afternoon whilst he was in the pushchair on the school run. It’s unusual for him to nap, but he was super grouchy during the day and clearly needed it. The only problem is, even if his eyes close for just 2 minutes, his batteries are fully charged and he’s good to go for another 6 hours. I’m not even exaggerating…
And go he has. I tried to get him to sleep at about 7:45 but to no avail so I bought him back downstairs so I could have dinner. He spent a good 3 minutes whilst me and his daddy ate our dinner, doing doughnuts in the living room with the Trunki…round and round and round and round and round and round…you get the idea. He went on for a while. Such fun
I eventually had enough and, at 9pm, I took him back upstairs to attempt to get him to sleep. This took until 10pm. And in the meantime, in the pitch black of his bedroom, this is the noise I was having to put up with. It’s not at all disconcerting…
