This afternoon when I met Cavett at school, he was covered. Literally, covered. Head to toe in sand. In his hair alone he must have had at least 3-4 Tablespoons worth. There was sand in his shoes, in his socks, stuck to his arms, legs, and hands. He loves the sandbox and has had an issue with his teachers (and me) about throwing the sand. We have had to empty out the shoes before getting in the car, but today was ridiculous!
As soon as he got home, he went straight to the bathtub and got a nice "exfoliating" scrub. He whined and cried about it the enitre way so a nap was appropriate. "Just a little catnap," as he calls it. Well, it turned into a 2 hour and 45 minute snooze. He was ready to go after this little "catnap." Unfortunately, he also had some ice cream after dinner. He was wired. So, we got out the scooters and had a race down to the mailboxes and back several times. Sometimes we were both on scooters, other times one of us ran and the other scooted. Cavett won every time.
It's now 9:25 and he's still up in his bed awake. I guess we will have to push through the whining and complaining and crying so that he will fall asleep easier. He is so his Dad when it comes to sleeping.
