When you are 3 years old, naptime should not be optional. It's just one of those things I believe in. Unfortunately, these days Jack doesn't seem to agree. Maybe it has something to do with taking a break from preschool and a regular schedule. I feel like I'm doing everything I can to make sure he gets worn out in the mornings, but I guess I'll have to work harder. It's not that I even manage to get much done during naptime these days, but without that much needed nap, that sweet preschooler turns into a terror by dinnertime.
We pulled up to our first day of swim lessons at 6 pm tonight at which point he says, "I'm sooo tired." He hadn't even gotten out of the car yet! Or what about his full-on meltdown when it was time to get out of the pool an hour later and leave. Or the fit he pitched when we couldn't stay and play at a sweet friend's house as I stopped for a quick errand on the way home. I was so exhausted by the time I put them to bed, I immediately drew a bath. Something I rarely do, but it was the closest I was getting to a vacation tonight.
Also this week, we've learned that Sam is a fan of Jr. Bacon Cheeseburgers from Wendy's. He'll actually sit still for a minute if he thinks he's about to get a bite.
