Sometimes when Carter is waking up from a nap - we notice that he has one eye slightly open ... like he's checking out the fun potential in the room and deciding whether or not he should wake up or go back to bed. And he won't fully wake up unless it looks like we're doing something fun.
And we have noticed that he cries a lot when he has to take a nap or go to bed when it seems like something fun is going on. What does he think he's going to miss by going to bed?
So I wonder - does he think we play with his toys and frolic around when he sleeps?
Here is what I think he's looking for:
Carter, you just wait until you have a big wheels ... mommy and daddy won't hesitate to play on that when you nap.
