I know it is just a phase. Katie did the same thing. But I am about to go insane.
I now have a 2 year old who desperately needs a nap, but refuses to take one. He plays in his room. He lays on the floor, peeking out of the crack at the bottom. He rocks in the rocking chair in there. He comes out the door every 15 to 20 minutes.
His eyes are droopy. He is crabby and whiny. But he refuses to give in, and I can not get him to sleep unless I lay with him for almost an hour. I don't have that kind of time.
We are experiencing the same delight at night basically. He has a hard time falling asleep, then wakes up sometime during the night, whimpering, "I'm hungry mama", "Go downstairs". ARGH!!!
I promise I am feeding the boy a snack right before bed, and he is eating, but for whatever reason, he has gotten it in his little head that nighttime is get up and eat time. The only night he got food was the rice krispie night.
To my crafting friends who remember the early history of baby Nicholas, any ideas? I think I am ready to try a baby gate at the door, but I am pretty sure he can climb over it. And I won't lock him in. I am starting to go crazy, and with school starting next week, we need to try to get past this phase quickly.
