So I haven’t taken a picture of my kids in a week – that’s gotta be some kind of record, right??
I assure you they’re just as cute as ever. In looks anyhow.
We have hit a terrible, no-good, very bad stage with a certain 23 month old. He all of a sudden decided he wasn’t going to take naps anymore. Or sleep well at night. Anyone want to diagnose this? Who goes from taking a decent 3 hour nap to nothing??? The poor kid has lived the past week and a half exhausted. His eyes are red-rimmed, he cries all afternoon long, he reeallly cries from dinner to bedtime, and then still doesn’t go to sleep right away at night.
I have tried everything in the book. I’ve had to start playing mean mom and constantly stand outside his door saying “HEAD DOWN, EYES CLOSED!!!”. This will go on for 2 hours and he won’t fall asleep. I wouldn’t mind him just laying and resting if it meant he wouldn’t fall apart all afternoon long.
This pretty much started when he started preschool. I know he doesn’t do well with change and I’m wondering if this is somehow related. His teachers say he has fun but he just doesn’t act excited to go and is super excited to come home.
So if you have any ideas, besides a double dose of Benadryl, let me know!
