Me: 'Let me know when you want a nap' (because I'm bloody knackered)
Baby: 'I don't want to go to sleep, I want to wake up now'
Me: 'Well we didn't get a lot of sleep last night did we darling? So maybe we should have a snuggle and a little nap?' (You kept me awake all night you toddlerous cretin and now I want to go to bed)
Baby: 'Don't want to sleep, I'm watching The Wiggles'
Me: 'Ok well maybe afterwards then' (you WILL sleep)
Naps have become a military operation in precision. No naps will equal hellchild after tea tonight. A nap too late will equal a bedtime so ineffectual that I will be forced to throw myself out of the bedroom window and scream, or else curl up into a ball, rock and drool lots whilst randomly mumbling various concoctions of vowels.
Baby: 'I want to go to bed, turn wiggles off and then go to bed'
