In fact, if they're tired, my boyz will even ask to go to bed.
And if that doesn't kill you, guess what else?
Baby, at age 3-1/2, naps pretty much daily. And still goes to bed at 8:30 p.m.
And Middle, at age 4-1/2, still naps sometimes. The babysitter gives him "rest time" for an hour. Occasionally he falls asleep. Which can be a BAD thing. Keep reading.
For when Middle does nap? He's certifiably OFF THE WALL those evenings. Hyper, manic and simply just OVER RESTED. My normally laid-back thumb-sucking mellow video game puzzle geek turns into a MANIAC.
Ladies and gentlemen of the jury, I present to you Exhibit A:
Too Much Sleep from Sarah Viz on Vimeo.
Please be advised that no sugar was administered to the defendant beforehand. It's simply a manifestation of the effects of a mid-day 2 hour nap on a 4-1/2 year old.
Let this be a warning to you all. There IS such a thing as TOO MUCH SLEEP.
I rest my case.
