Dear son, SLEEP. Kthx. <3 U.

Dear Liam,

If you don't want to nap anymore, that's cool. If it's something your body doesn't need, I'm fine with that.

If you want to get up between six and seven every morning, that's cool too. It means we get to see Daddy a little before he leaves for work and I think that's great for all of us!

However.

These two things COMBINED are not working for me, and I'm kind of your boss? So choose one, and run with it.

Because I can tell it's not really working for you either, considering your daily 3 p.m. meltdowns about the block stuck under the couch, or the banana you can't eat fast enough, or when the book just doesn't have any more pages. Sorry they didn't write more pages.

The days are long when you're awake so long, aren't they? Sleeping is nice, isn't it? Please work on doing a little more of it. Bed at 8 p.m. = awesome! Sleeping till 9 or 10 in the morning = perfect! DO IT. Then we can party all day long.

I love you, and I want your happiness and (mostly) daylong contentedness. Now please get some sleep.

Listen to your mother.

Love, Mama
xoxo
