naptime blues

Once upon a time there was a Mom who was so lucky! As afternoon came near she would carry her wide awake child into his room, sing him a little song, give him a hug and kiss and put him in his crib. The child would then fall asleep without making a peep, and would sleep for 3 hours. Then one day the child discovered how to climb out of his crib. The Mom would worry that the dear child was going to fall and crack open his head on the concrete floor, so, the Mom and Dad got the child a "big boy bed". Now, it is a different story. Instead of the child falling asleep, he destroyes his room. He pulls everything out of his dresser, pulls out every toy he can get his hands on, and, in one case, pulled the wall paper boarder off the wall. This oh so lucky Mom now would like to give her dear child a tranquilizer come nap time!

This room was clean before I tried to put him down for a nap. Somebody PLEASE help me! Oh, and the real clincher... he never did fall asleep. AAAAAAAHHHHHHHHH!!!!!

Man what a bummer! As long as he's staying in his room I guess. I will tell you...alayna stopped takin naps entirely at 2! Crap-ola!

This sounds exactly like my little brother. He would then eventually fall asleep on the floor in front of the door. It was the greatest punishment to have to clean up his room. I'd make Mason clean up the mess and then maybe he won't do it anymore! Good luck!

I have a solution to your napping problems! Move back home and when it is time for Mason to go down for a nap call your sister to babysit while you go get a pedicure!
