Here are a couple of things about my boy that I just don’t understand.
1) When he is with me, he puts himself to sleep at nap time in about 10 minutes and will usually sleep for 2.5 – 3 hours. When he is with S for nap time, he refuses to put himself to sleep, will only fall asleep nursing and usually sleeps for under 1.5 hours. WTF?
2) At night-time, S usually puts M to bed. While he does put himself to sleep, it usually takes 45 minutes to an hour for him to do so. WTF?
3) M and I had a great day today. Lots of playing, social time, great nap, no whining. We walked to meet S after work. As soon as we got to the front porch, he starts whining, not following directions and, before long, we are in full-blown melt down mode. No sugar today. Right on time for bed. Fun day. WTF?
4) He tells me over and over again that he doesn’t like nuts. If I hand him a nut, he will chew it up and then spit the masticated remnants into his hand, then transfer to mine. Tonight, I made stir-fry and put almond slivers in. When he asked what they were, I said crunchy almond slivers. Apparently he now loves everything crunchy.
Children are strange creatures.
