Letter to a Nap Resistant Toddler

Dear Restless Rascal,

I love you so much and I know you so well.  This is why I have laid you down for a nap.  I know that our afternoon will be filled with playtime, puzzles, wrestles and fun if you rest your pretty little head.  On the contrary, I know what awaits us if you resist.  Crying, fit throwing and completely unbridled emotions, oh and you probably won’t behave very well either. 

You must believe you are missing something.  Perhaps Mommy has a dance party, eats all the icecream or watches 15 episodes of Bubble Guppies while I sleep.  I will let you in on a secret.  I do laundry, unload and load the dishwasher, sweep the floors, return emails and calls and if I’m feeling really crazy, I may drink a Diet Coke while I do it.  I promise Sweetness, you are getting the better end of this deal.

So count sheep, sing a lullaby or read a book but please rest Sweet One.  Our day depends on it. 

Love you,

Exhausted Mommy
