Alex has not been taking his regular naps since Sun. He at most slept during a car ride, none yesterday and 15mins at most for today. I think this happened coz his nap time was disrupted on a day where we ran errands and left him with the grandparents.
He’s hyper when he’s tired and his antics really bothers me. To see him so tired, eyes glazed n not vocal even though he would still continue playing also saddens me. I put him to bed at 7:30pm tonight and he has woken up 3X so far coz I’m not sleeping beside him. I am dealing these by myself coz hb is in reservist but TG that there’s home-cooked dinner and support/advice given by friends. Not to mention I am tired.
So from tomorrow onwards, I will kick start a routine to make sure he will resume his regular nap, otherwise I will lose my sanity and wits. If this routine doesn’t work after a week and push comes to shove, I will use the cry-it-out method. *determined*
- Gym time
- Wind down time (reading)
Maybe I will start him on some lifeskills training, i.e. doing housechores and also to tired him out?!
