So, gone is the gate in the doorway of his room ~ cue DS having adventures up and down the stairs after bedtime. Gone is the buggy for transport to and from nursery ~ cue DS running up driveways and knocking on doors. And in response, DS has gone cold turkey and given up his afternoon nap (boo!); and having done so, he is struggling with being awake all day and my beautiful boy has turned into a spitting and hissing obnoxious nightmare. Where has my beautiful boy gone and when will he return? My normal response to a parental crisis of confidence is "this is a phase, it too will pass"... I'm finding it tough going this week.
