Today was one of those days when my son refused to nap and I felt my patience draining from me faster than I care to admit.  It doesn't help that yesterday he also refused to nap.  This lack of napping wouldn't be so bad if he actually functioned well without one, or was one of those children whose energy begins to fade the more tired they become. 

Not my son.  No, my son becomes louder and more hyper the more tired he gets.  Jumping on the bed.  Coming downstairs to say hi.  Zooming his cars along the wood floor in his room.  Singing at the top of his lungs. 

By the time he finally fell asleep, much later than his usual naptime, I was exhausted and so was my husband.  We both knew that he would then be wired until much past his regular bedtime as well. 

And so he was.  He just went down a few minutes ago.  At 10pm.  His regular bedtime is 7: 30. 

What's that you say?  At least he should sleep in tomorrow.


Maybe until 8 o'clock or 8:30 if we're lucky,  but most likely it will be before 8 am.  Rise and shine.  Good morning Mommy!  Get up! 

So, I think I'll call it a night.  Curl up in bed with Outlander, my current read, and make it an early evening. 

I'm going to need all the energy I've got tomorrow.

Don't forget, the weekly menu plan will be posted sometime tomorrow (depending strongly on the State of the Nap).  Check the Menu Plan tab for previously posted plans. 

Happy Saturday!


  1. Good luck my little one has not slept in three night because she is sick and hubby and I are done

  2. Thanks! When they're sick it's the worst- a mixture of worrying about them and wishing they would just go to sleep all at once! Good luck, I hope things get better soon!
