I was laying on his bed beside him trying to coax him into taking a nap, because he So. Very. Desperately needed to sleep.
Kyna, however did not think this nap to be a necessity at all.
He tossed, he turned, he laid quietly for about 5 seconds, his eyelids began to droop and then…
He sat up!
And started talking, he was doing everything in his power to not take a nap.
Did you ever notice how you literally cannot make a child sleep.
He was drifting off again, but he quickly stopped that from happening by bursting into song.
I was getting frustrated so I laid down the law.
“Kyna, you need to take a nap, you may not talk and you may not sit up till you sleep.”
“But Mom! That’s gonna how not it bees!”
“What?” I was so very confused.
“That’s gonna how not it bees.” He whined again.
I still had no clue what he was trying to say so I just agreed. “Ok.”
He looked at me in surprise. “May I get up?”
“No Kyna! Not till you take a nap!”
“No Mom, that’s gonna how not it bees.”
Now we are back to that?!
“Kyna, I don’t know what you are saying, but you need to be quiet and sleep now.”
“But Mom, that’s gonna how not it bees!”
Suddenly my brain started working and I figured out what he was trying to say.
But Mom, that’s not how it’s gonna be! 🙂
Sorry buddy but yes, that’s how it’s gonna be.
