Does anyone else have problems getting their children to take a nap? It's not the nap itself, it's the prelude to the nap. It starts with whining on the way home from the gym (around 11am most days). "I don't wanna take a nap!" Now, naptime isn't until 1:30, but yes, the prelude itself starts 2 hours earlier...Then there is lunch. He has taken to playing with his food instead of eating it because the end of lunch signifies yet another step towards that dreaded nap...Finally after many reminders to eat, I throw up my hands and threaten to take his food away if the timer goes off before he is done. Suddenly he's oh so hungry and in about 3 minutes he'll polish off his plate. And then, when naptime finally comes, you'd think I was asking him to endure shots at the doctor's office by the melodrama that ensues. And does he sleep? You bet! Usually 2.5-3 hours of sleep, so I know he needs it, I just don't know why it's such a fight every day. So is it just me?
