What has happened to my napper?!? I realize that he should be transitioning from two naps to one. I understand that. I'm happy with that. I've been ready for one afternoon nap for awhile now, since most activities we attend are in the morning.
But this, this is I did not expect. For several days, he started napping from 9:30-11:00, and wouldn't take an afternoon nap. He was too tired and cranky, but refusing a nap. For the last couple of days, I've tried to either eliminate the morning nap, or cut it short (forcing what I thought would be an afternoon nap). NOT! Yesterday resulted in a 20 minute nap and that was it. It was a long, tiring and very difficult day.
Today resulted in a 5 minute nap on the way home from the gym. I tried to transition him to the crib, but that didn't work. So I got him up, gave him lunch, took him to the pool for an hour (an hour was his limit today) and put him down for a nap when we got home. He was determined not to take one, but so very tired he could barely function. Finally, after a long taxing afternoon, he fell asleep.
Let's hope he wakes up feeling refreshed!
