I'm Envious

One of the things I find most endearing about kids Oliver's age is the way they forgive and forget. Today O had a serious temper tantrum when I put him down for his nap. I went in several times to let him know I was still there, tried everything I know to get him settled and finally just left him. He was playing games and I refused to play.

Well, he freaked. He trashed his room. He screamed for a looooong time. Then he finally fell asleep.

When he woke up and I went to get him, he happily said 'HI!'. We had our usual post-nap snuggle and all was good between us.

I sure I wish an hour of sleep would make me forget how angry I just was. I'm sure Nick wishes that too.
