Update

Alden went back to crying, and after we were convinced he meant it Damon went down to see what he could do. Our discussion about whether we should go get him went like this:

Jillian: We are past the point where we can hope for a positive outcome.
Damon: This must be what it felt like at the Alamo.

Now I can hear Damon down there with him again. The discussion is going like this:

Alden: Skirl! Skirl!
Damon: Yes, that’s a squirrel in the yard.
Alden: Bye bye skirl.
Damon: Yes, the squirrel went away.
Alden: crycrycrycry “Cake?”

I think we can surrender the nap plan and just muscle our way through to the dinner portion of our evening. Won’t our friends be delighted to be joined by an un-napped toddler? Don’t you wish you were joining us?

  3. Why, yes I do. Because, if I was, I would take Alden to another table and feed him all the cake his little heart desired.

  7. UGH! Hope it went well. Or, at least, hope you all survived.
    I should be taking advantage of my precious, too-short naptime, but noooo, I gotta go web surf.
    So, when’s Alden getting his own blog? Or at least a Twitter feed? πŸ™‚

    • We did survive. At least this time.
      It’s scary how often I consider creating an online presence for Alden. If he actually had a blog, every entry would read: Monkey! Monkey! Mooooooooo! Cake?
