Rule of Two

I was just sitting down to describe how, after refusing to hold hands in parking lots, and refusing to eat, Westley has started refusing to go to bed at anything like a reasonable time (like any time before, say, ten o'clock).

Because of course sleep would have to enter into it. Because these sudden hatreds come in threes when you're two: you reject safety, you reject nutrition, and you reject sleep. Saying "no" is where it's at!

And then I realized: last night (and the night before and the night before and the night before...) Westley performed a one-man show so tragic you'd think Shakespeare had had something to do with it; tonight, suddenly and for no apparent reason, bedtime seems to have gone off without a hitch. In fact, I haven't heard a peep from him in over an hour.

(Now if I could just get him to keep his shoes on in the car.)

I know birthdays are important milestones, especially when you're little, but it being Westley's "birthday eve" doesn't make up for weeks of sleep issues. Clearly, something's up. Either Westley is giving me an early gift for his birthday by putting himself back on his old bedtime routine, or else he's messing with me.

(He's messing with me, isn't he?)

well, he may indeed be messing with you dear, although probably not deliberately! i think it's just the nature of babes to constantly keep you guessing - the minute you think you've got a steady routine going, they change it up on you. then just as you're wondering "why does my kid hate me AAHHH??!" they go back to old habits that made your life easier. nothing boring about being a mama, that's for damn sure! (;

you're little man is just so stinking cute, by the way. his eyes are so expressive and full of life, like he's plotting his next big move in every shot! love that kiddo.

good luck with transitioning into the land of 2! cheers!

Of course they do this to screw with your head, keep you on your toes. They want to make sure their mommy is at the top of their game :)

I love that car seat cover, by the way. Very fashionable for a vegan baby.

WOW I can't believe how big he's gotten. I swear this past year has went by rediculously fast.

Your little man is keeping you on your toes for sure. I hope he's not messing with you, and is indeed giving you a gift!
