A beautiful day ruined by a tiny slip-up!

I don’t know about you but I always look forward to this moment. I cant start my tomorrow without planning it today.  A minor inadvertent mistake on my part ruined our afternoon today which made me realize that I need to make my plan a bit more comprehensive. He woke up at 6 and we ate, played,  went outside and had a blast – ate,played again – I should have remembered to put him down for a nap since he got up so early & around 4 he got so cranky . And I thought it’s better to still try to make him nap albeit late. He snoozed at 4:30 and I thought he would wake up in an half hour or so . But he only got up past 6 and he was still cranky – it was meltdown after meltdown 😦 I didn’t know what to do – I even gave a timeout in the crib because it was very hard to handle him. After sometime his dad was home, we all ate dinner & played , situation got a little better and now he is back in bed again. Lesson learned! He does not nap every day. It depends on when he wakes up and how much I tire him out but I usually know if he needs a nap – all I need is a gentle remainder! I need to make him nap between 12 to 2, not later than 3 and I will wake him up if he sleeps longer than 3 hours. I believe nap is good  and I am going to try naptime every single day – If he does not nap that’s okay!
