This morning, Ian did not want to go to school. I told him that he needs to go because:
1- It's fun.
2- He has lots of friends there to play with.
3- His teachers will miss him if he doesn't go.
and 4- He and Mommy need to take a break from each other sometimes. (!)
He looks at me and says, "But, Mommy. I want to stay here and talk to you ALL DAY LONG."
Now, honestly, you know I adore my children. But this whole no-nap thing is driving me just a little insane... as in, I NEED A BREAK EVERY ONCE IN A WHILE. And although the thought of his little voice rambling on all day long is cute...it also makes me twitch a little bit. Is that bad? Suddenly I'm feeling like a very, very bad mother.
