It's no secret that Lincoln is a night owl. He always has been. Lately, it seems that his naps aren't happening unless we're in the car. I would be fine cutting his nap out if he'd go to bed, you know, before his usual 10 or 11 pm. But unfortunately, I don't think he's ready quite yet. You see, this is what happens if Lincoln skips his nap.
Somewhere between 5-6pm he gets very miserable, which is obviously because he's tired. He comes to his Momma for comfort, and usually will snuggle up to me. And then, this happens....
Yup. This was 6:00pm. Followed by a puddle of drool on my shirt after I move him.
Some of my mommy friends have suggested just putting him to bed for the night then. That would be fabulous and all, however there's no way my kid would sleep the entire night going to bed that early. I've tried it. He wakes up like clockwork, one hour later. And then, he's up even later than usual.
My kid hates sleep. I don't know what else to say, really!
I would love to be able to phase out his nap completely, if it would mean he'd go to bed at a reasonable hour for a two year old. Heck, I'd even be happy for 9pm at this point!
I will say, that although his Momma isn't a night owl, everytime I see this sweet little face all snuggled up into me, it seems to make all my frustrations disappear.
Little boys love their Momma, and Lincoln is certainly no exception!
