Ten ways to tell if your 5 year old could use a nap

  1. He's rubbing his eyes
  2. He's playing pirates with only one eye open - the one NOT covered by the eye-patch.
  3. He's whining.
  4. He's complaining.
  5. He's snivelling.
  6. He's not in the mooooooood to play.
  7. He's wants to watch Sponge Bob, no! Tutenstein, no! Spongebob!
  8. He's growing fangs, horns, claws, and a forked tail.
  9. He throws a face-down, full-volume, red-faced, nuclear melt-down.
  10. He's not tiiiiired and he doesn't neeeeeed a naaaaaap.

Why does he save up the melt-downs for when we have a childless guest over? First one in weeks, I swear.

Aw, poor little guy. And hey, your childless guest isn't much different when he's tired :)

(nor am I for that matter)

LOL. Doesn't it always seem to work that way?

Funny things kids...we have the full-scale nuclear meltdown quite often. Much too often for my liking. Did he have his nap in the end?
