Lucas is driving me absolutely insane. He's usually such a good napper and sleeper - generally going down w/o a fight. But now that we're at Grandma's house, there are fun toys, dogs, and people. He just wants to run non-stop. The main problem is that he can climb out of his bed. So I will put him in for nap time and he will lay down, but five minutes later he's playing with blocks or Mr. Potato Head in the living room.
I have resorted to locking the door to the bedroom and staying in there with him until he is exhausted from fighting me. Then I have to lay next to him until he falls asleep, then he's all sweet and precious, and after 15 or 20 minutes I can put him in the pack 'n' play. Our 12:30 nap time and changed to 2:00 because of all the protesting. And last night he slept from 11:00 - 6:45, which is NOT cool.
Any advice? We have some friends who will loan us a real crib that he won't climb out of... at least he wouldn't a week ago. We might have to do that.
On a fun note, my mom and I are making a mint chocolate cake with chocolate ganache frosting, so that should make me happier.
