Something funny is going on here!

Monkey has never needed a lot of sleep.  He dropped from two naps/day to one at 10 months, he stopped napping entirely around 18 months.  Duhdee protested at both junctures and tried REALLY hard to maintain the naps but you can’t make someone sleep (well, except with melatonin but we save that for nighttime emergencies, lol.)

Sometimes, when he has had a very rough day (or night before) he will nap but it’s not with any regularity and, more often than not, he will stay up all day despite being exhausted and ill tempered.

So, can someone explain this to me please?  Today, for the 3rd day in the last week, Monkey grabbed his blanky, marched into our bedroom and put himself down for a nap.  Yesterday, he watched a bit of TV before he decided to turn it off for a nap.  Today, he just went straight for the nap.  No one is complaining, but I am just so confused!

    Maybe it’s a growth spurt. My kids seem to sleep more when they hit a growth spurt. Enjoy it while it lasts!

    I suggested that to Duhdee too, it would be perfect timing. I did just buy him new sandals so I guess it is about time for him to bump up a size *sigh*
