The Great Battle of the Nap

I know this video is dark, but let me set the stage for you. Right now, Ian is supposed to be laying down for his nap. You are looking at his door. Hopefully you can hear a little bit of the activity of what's going on inside. This little boy is a trip.  Enjoy...

This is probably the 5th time I've caught him out of bed at nap time.  Oh, the times of transitioning from a crib to a toddler bed. I tell you what...it's something else. I have to keep reminding myself not to laugh at his antics, thus reinforcing his nap evasion behavior. It is kind of funny though to see what he tries to come up with to fight off sleep.

I will say though, that last night went better than the first night. The first night, between the hours of 4 and 6:30 am, Ian decided he wanted to get out of bed every 10-20 minutes and run into Mommy and Daddy's room.  Daddy finally camped out with him, because he wouldn't stay in bed any other way.  Last night, we put him down around 9 pm, and didn't hear a peep from his little pitter pattering feet until almost 9:30 this morning!  
I'm just hoping nap time today doesn't reflect what tonight is going to look like.

The joys of parenting - even with all these "battles", I wouldn't have it any other way.
