Why must you fight it?!
So the boy has been fighting naps lately. Sometimes he will give in around 2 or 3, but I just think that is too late for a nap. Usually by 5:00 pm his little eyes are so droopy, and we are looking for anything that has just a little bit of sugar in it, to keep him going just a bit longer. I don't want him going to sleep any earlier than 8 or so, otherwise we will be waking up at 6:00am and I DO NOT want to wake up that early!!! I think this teething thing is getting hard on him. I believe he is cutting up to 6 teeth right now, and they are the big ones in the back. I feel so bad for him. He constantly has his hands crammed in his mouth, just chewing away on his little chubby hands. And since it's been rather cold here lately, his hands feel like little ice blocks :( I give him teething tablets and Tylenol at night sometimes, but I don't want him drugged up all day. I can't wait for this process to be over with, and I'm sure he can't wait either.
