I'm in mourning.....

I am so sad to say goodbye to something sacred to my day for the last 3 years. Mason has officially outgrown his nap. I have been fighting him at naptime to stay in bed, stay quiet, go to sleep, etc for the last several weeks. And, we have started having to fight him at bedtime to stay in bed as well. Most nights, he does not go to sleep until 9PM or after. So, today I put the portable DVD player in his room and instituted "quiet time". He can play, read, watch the video or nap - as long as he stays in his room and stays quiet until mommy comes to get him. So far, it is going well. I am glad, but also so sad to know that 1) he is growing up so quickly and 2) my day just got a little longer. Although, he may go to bed a little earlier tonight. That would be nice!
Ran 3.5 miles this morning. Don't remember the time. I know I was slow though.... some days just are slow days, I guess.
