Happy child. Nap. Broken Child

Do you ever feel like a nap has broken your child? 

Let me set the scene for you…you’ve had a lovely morning. Your small person has been a pleasure to be around: you’ve played together, they’ve played on their own so you could get a couple of jobs done, you’ve been out to soft play and they’ve had had a lovely time climbing and exploring and as you return home they fall asleep in the car. You get home and their still asleep so you sit in the car catching up on the world of social media till they wake and enjoying a few minutes peace and thinking how lovely it’s all been…then they wake up and all is lost. Your small person hates the world and everyone in it. You try to distract with the walker but they cry more, you try cuddling them and they push you away, you try a drink which they have then continue to cry, you let them play with a random bottle you find but they cry at that too, you feed them – fearing they are hungry – to no avail, before finally resorting to Calpol (maybe their teeth are hurting them?), their taggie blanket, a dummy and Peppa Pig on the Tv….and this is where we currently are at.  

I can only assume the nap broke him. 

Does this sound familiar? Comment below! 🙂

  2. Yes! Mine looks so lovely and peaceful when she is napping – a couple of minutes after she has woken up, she is a little demon instead!

  5. I have to try my best not to let Jet sleep during the day now, otherwise he will not go to bed nicely! But he is three and a half now, so it was about time for him to drop his nap… I miss it though! I used to get some stuff done back then!
