My 4-year-old cracker addict requested grapes and apples as today’s snacks. Breakfast was oatmeal and yogurt; lunch was chicken with peas and carrots, all eaten with gusto.
In between rabbit food noshes, I sent him to his room for rest time, which means reading every book on his shelf in lieu of a nap. He has taken a nap a total of 13 times since Christmas, and never without much drama and bribery. As I walked past his room some 15 minutes later, I noticed the light was off. Not wanting early childhood blindness to set in, I opened the door and found him curled up on his bed, asleep. He stayed that way for over an hour.
OK, who replaced my kid with a robot?
