the story of a boy who wouldn’t nap

a certain little boy only took a 40 minute afternoon nap today.
 
after about an hour of being up, the same little boy started getting fussy, and his mama decided he needed to lay back down for a second nap.
 
but the little boy cried…
and cried…
and cried…

but the little boy REFUSED to take a nap. REFUSED!
 
his mama (1) let him cry in his room alone, (2)patted his back and sang quietly, (3) rocked him…
 
yet the little boy still didn’t take a nap.
 
SO… his mama decided he could skip the second nap and would just go to bed early that night.
 
so she put him in his jumperoo…

and for a few seconds, he liked it.

and then he didn’t.

and then he just wasn’t sure about it.

and when he got tired of the jumperoo, his mama took him to the couch to play with toys…

he played with his crinkle book…

and his jingle keys and his froggy all his other fun toys.

and he enjoyed doing that for quite a while.
and then he decided he didn’t want to play with his toys anymore.

so then the little boy played in his highchair.

but after he’d thrown all his toys in the floor -- he was tired of the highchair.

and that’s when his mama decided it was time to make the little boy’s night-time bottle.

the little boy closed his tired little eyes and drank the bottle very, very slowly.

and then.
he slept.

  1. That little boy was probably just upset because he hadn't seen his granny today! Poor baby!
