Bad Night

Noah had a pretty bad night.

He didn't get a nap in today, so that was probably the main cause of the issue. He started getting pretty cranky around 7:00 or so. I could tell at that point that it was going to be an interesting evening.

Instead of slowing down at all, though, he just kept getting more and more active. And, of course, he stopped listening.

Finally, about 8:00, he threw on the final straw. He kicked the dog. At that point, I just told him that it was time to go upstairs.

He started kicking and screaming and it didn't stop. I tried to get him into bed and it just wasn't working. I was getting mad and he was getting hysterical. I went down and asked Misty to try to get him into bed.

She went up and I could tell that she was having about as much luck as I was so I went back up to see if there was anything that I could do.

All it took was for me to kneel down next to his bed, give him a hug and tell him that he was going to be OK.

Less than 10 minutes later, he was asleep. Hopefully he stays that way.
