Any Mom's that have gone through the "IN BETWEEN NAP STAGE"?
Izzy can't live with them and can't live without them.
On a day when Izzy just won't sleep, but requests a "quiet time" in the afternoon. I get him a blanket, his sippy cup filled with juice, a nice book and lock him in the dog kennel.
No need to re-read the last sentence. You read it the first time correctly.....
When I ask Izzy why he wants to go in to the dog kennel and be locked in, he says, "Because I feel safe and loved Mom."
A sick and twisted kind of love no doubt.
