Lately, little kid and I are locked in a death match regarding his afternoon nap. He thinks he's going to go down to one nap a day, and he is WRONG.
So every day I put him in there around 3:00ish/4ish, and for the last few weeks he's pretty much just waited it out. I decided a while ago that I'm no longer going to him when he calls for me or cries because then it's a done deal, then there's no way he'll go down.
But would you believe that little shit can keep it up for over an hour?? He has nothing to do in there. He just lays there and makes noises. Why not take a nap? Especially now that we have established that I am NOT going to come get him.
I cannot do only one nap a day. Can not, will not. The day is just too long to only get one break. So, I'm not giving up on this. I don't care if he lies in there and complains and screams and hums to himself for two hours every day, I'm not losing afternoon quiet time.
I WILL win this battle.
