No Nap Wednesday

Well, we did it. Accomplished something I never thought I would survive. Intentionally skipping nap time. Yep that's right! Mac took no nap today. (Disclaimer: This is like when people say there's no sugar in something when in fact there's .05 of a gram of sugar, but to the FDA .05 = 0. Meaning he fell asleep in the car for ten minutes but that's it. No napping in bed. And he woke up as soon as we got home. )

I was anticipating it being a day full of meltdowns (his and mine), me pulling out my hair, tears (again, his and mine) and whining that would make me want to put my head through a wall. Because that's what I do when I'm sleep deprived... just kidding. Sorta.

Anyhow, he did really well!! Around nap time I asked him if he was tired and he said "No dodo Mommy. All done dodo." So I took him at his word. We actually had a really pleasant afternoon. And it was sort or a trial by fire day because today is gymnastics day too so not only DIDN'T he nap, he also had physical activities that exceed normal exertion for him.

The only thing about it was that his usual bed time is around 8. Tonight, it took some ninja mommy skills to keep him awake past 6:30. I managed to keep him awake until 7 because a part of me is scared that if he goes to bed too early he'll wake up at 5AM raring to go...

I'll let you know how THAT goes tomorrow.
