LOL Back when I had trouble just getting them TO nap at all, and then when they transitioned to one nap a day...I kept saying to myself, "they'll be 4 someday and not nap at all..." Little did I realize that THAT wouldn't be much easier.

How long was the transition? We are going on one week without naps, and I'm planning on having him nap tomorrow b/c he is just an absolute mess. I normally give up after 2-3 days, but I thought maybe I needed to give it more time...but really his behavior is atrocious compared to normal; just wondering if I should stick it out or get back to napping.
