2 hours of sleep

This morning was particularly rough for me personally. Elliott was up until almost 4 am and shortly after falling asleep, he woke up screaming because he must have bitten his the inside of his cheek.

He was really upset and in pain but I couldn’t figure out what was going on until we were up for the day. Elliott wasn’t able to tell me what had happened because he wasn’t fully awake. 

He did go back to sleep but when the alarm went off to get the day started, we had only had about 2 hours of sleep. 

The boys did get off to school without much issue but I’m going to have to take a nap..

It struck me as curious that you needed a nap (which, not judging), but they could go to school.

I have to wonder if it’s not counter-productive to let him nap. I’m not sure what their bedtime is, but would it be better to try to keep him awake until then and then hope he sleeps through the night? Also, have you tried having them read books at night?

Definitely in the minority but my kids love going to the library and picking out new books. I agree with Kim on all her points above.

It’s nice to hear that kids still love to read and still love books!

Sorry to flood this post with replies, but I did a quick search for Canton library events, and while I don’t know which ones are close to you and which aren’t, I saw that they have a Lego club, they are hosting a birds of prey night (with live birds!) and they have Minecraft Mondays. It sounds like there are some really fun things happening in libraries these days.
