The life of a busy toddler can be simply exhausting! Sometimes, the demands are so numerous that it saps every last ounce of energy from a little body. All that endless milk drinking, block stacking, ring chewing, and diaper filling would tire out any of us. Add to that, non-stop squealing, scooting, standing, and giggling, and you’ve got one action-packed day!
It’s more responsibility than any one person should be asked to take on, in a mere 24 hours! Yet, all across the world, millions of these dedicated darlings do just that. From morning until night, they are on a mission, obsessed even, to master their surroundings and take in all the wonders that this life has to offer.
It’s a good thing that naps were invented so that these little workers can have a daily reprieve from their myriad daytime responsibilities. They can then wake up, refreshed, ready to see the day to its exhausting end.
From time-to-time, however, for whatever reason, the nap gets skipped. Maybe there’s a playdate that runs long, or maybe Mom has an appointment that coincides with nap time. No matter the reason, the result is the same. A courageous little one who simply cannot make it through the afternoon.
Just ask the little trooper in our video. This charming fellow tries with all his might to stay awake long enough to finish the nutritious, if not delicious, dinner his daddy has set in front of him. In spite of his valiant effort, he succumbs to the powerful lure of the awaiting slumber. It’s just too precious for words! Going...Going...GONE!
Enjoy the short, but sweet, video, below.
