The Law of Averages

If your toddler starts taking three plus hour long naps for six days in a row after consistently being a two-hour nap child for his, oh, entire life, do not worry that something is wrong with him. Do not get comfortable with this arrangement either. Because for every yesterday (a day that you have to physically wake him at 4:45pm because if he sleeps much longer than the 3 and a half hours he's already slept you'll never get him into bed) there is a today (NO Nap. Nothing. Nada. Zero. Zilch. Zippo.)

Is it wrong to already be thinking about the beer I'm going to have as soon as the hubby walks in the door? Does that indicate I have a problem, or just a 20-month old?

Ooh, nap strikes are always alcohol-worthy. Throw a glass in the freezer now, and you can have a fancy frosted glass after peanut (finally) goes to bed tonight.

Um, the first thing I did once the tots were asleep was mix a drink. And they both took naps today. I think I'm in trouble!

Whoever invented the bloody mary must have had toddlers. Day time drinking is probably the M.O. in most households with kids under age 5.

We had the same problem this week! My two year old slept all afternoon for a week straight and then wouldn't take a nap for three days in a row. All is well now, but it was rough for a while!

Also, I'm happy to hear that I'm not the only one who has a cold one in the evening!

Thanks for inviting me to play along on the seven random things tag!
