Jakob isn’t very interested in taking naps, and he’s not afraid to say it. Even when he’s asleep, if you ask him if he wants to take a nap, he scrunches his face, shakes his head, and emphatically tells you, “no.” It’s cute and hilarious. When he’s awake, when we ask him if he wants to take a nap, he will either tell us that he doesn’t, or he’ll ask if he can sleep in our bed. That’s what he asked yesterday, so I said he could. But then he wouldn’t sleep. It was family nap time, since Sarah and I both wanted to sleep, but Jakob kept getting up and moving around. It was quite disruptive to sleep, so I sent him to his bed. With great objection, he went.
When I woke up, I went in to check on him and give him a hug. Only I didn’t see him anywhere. I went to make sure the door was shut and locked, as it should have been, and it was. He was somewhere inside. I just had to find him.
I guess he really meant it when he said he didn’t want to sleep in his own bed. All options were better.
