I know this child is tired, but he will not go to sleep. I have spent the past hour waiting for him to get tired and go down for a nap. The only way he will remotely be sleepy is in my lap sucking on an empty boob. I did not have the patience to deal with that today. At least not until I had something to eat.
I finally decided just to put him in the crib and let him cry, as that seems to be the only way today. He fell asleep in the car on the way home from playgroup, and he got just enough sleep to make him feel more awake. I hate it when that happens. So I have escaped downstairs where the crying is not nearly as loud. Apparently it is the end of the world that he is in the crib by himself, awake.
I suspect I am going to have to go in there and get him out and let him sit in my lap until he actually falls asleep. Because he is still crying hard enough to bring the house down. Sigh. But I am going to finish my lunch first.
