It's the end of the nap as we know it...

and we feel not so fine.

We had a great nappytime (Jack's word) routine going -- right after lunch Jack would run back to his room and get into bed. A little reading, a little singing, and it was lights out for him and some rest for me. Last week, everything started to shift. Now Jack doesn't want to take a nap. He still likes the reading and singing and snuggling, but then he wants to get up and play, even though he's tired and needs a nap. He skipped his nap altogether once, and was a wreck by dinner time. The mixed blessing that day was a very early bedtime -- he was asleep by 7:30. So we see the future and it looks not so nappy.

Don't give up on the nap yet, I remember Chayse going through a phase like that and we just rode it out and then the nap thing came back.

I miss having naps at my house.
