As any parent knows that late naps are the worst thing ever. Why? Because it means your child won’t go to bed on time, my youngest son who is almost 3 years old does this all the time to my husband and I. We try to wake him up when he takes a late nap and we have tried everything short of pouring ice cold water on him which is just hatefully mean. It is without a doubt one of the most annoying things children can do by staying up super late after a late nap when mommy just needs 5 minutes at quiet.
Another Mommy friend suggested I get the book “Seriously, Just Go To Sleep” by Adam Mansbach to read to my son. While it doesn’t have sleepy dust for my child’s it was incredibly well written with beautiful illustrations.
The cats nestle closer to their kittens,
The lambs have lain down with the sheep.
You’re cozy and warm in your bed, my dear.
Please, just this once, go to sleep.
Until next time,
