Remember this post on their adjusted bedtime? Im still sticking to the rules i mentioned. But somehow uZair’s body dah immune to those rules. I have to shorten his nap from 1.5 hours to 1 hour BUT yet he is still active at night. The same method is working well with elder 2. Infact even if hArith exceed his 1 hour nap, he still have no prob sleeping by 8-ish pm.
Last night i thought i gonna have an early night coz uZAir did quite alot of energy-burning-activities. He woke up around 730am and left for school by 9am. We fetched him at 1230pm and headed straight to tesco with all 3 to do some groceries shopping. He fell asleep on the trolley and had a total of almost an hour nap. We came home almost 2pm and he had his lunch (2nd lunch for the day, he had his lunch meal at school already). By 330pm he was already out at the patio running and jumping bout on the trampoline. Came in and out every now n then. By 5pm he was in his sandpit and we decided to go over to my inlaws. We left the hse almost 6pm and the minute we arrived, all 3 jump into their tukwan’s wadding pool. Had bout 40 mins of water splashing, after a shower, continue running bout in the house while having his dinner and we head home about 715pm.
In tukwan’s wadding pool in which the kids requested for bubble in it, wah ingat bathtub kah mau bubble bath? Purposely didnt fill up the water full for safety reason.
He look rather sleepy so i thought he would doze off in the car, but oh boy i am wrong. Reached home, he was still actively jumping about. Yes,literally jumping high up on the bed as though he was on the trampoline. Lights off by 740pm. Elder two nicely tucked in and fell asleep by 830pm but he was still screaming n jumping.
Ended up sleeping at 11:15pm!!!
Where does the energy come from? No chocolate given during the day….
He is 28 months old, shouldnt he be getting more sleep than that?
So now i should stop him from having nap? I have cut from 1.5 hours to 1 hour but yet he is still full of energy like those bunny energizer…
Hope Allah will reward me in the Hereafter for all the hardwork and patience in raising these 3 toddlers ager 3 and below, insyaAllah. Ameen
Fuhh next year it will be 4 toddlers under the age of 4! Sounds crazy aight! Wish me luck!

but i hope i wont bore u dgn keluhan penat jaga 4 budak..hihi
gud luck dlm melayan kerenah anak2…
is it because uzair dh terover penat n make him don’t wanna sleep?
kadang2 budak2 memang susah nk tdo kalau terlebih penat..

yup i know wat u mean, cam dh telepas zone ngantuk then trus tak tido…tp die takde tunjuk sign yg die ngantuk langsung…always jumping about. katil i tu mmg takde makne siap..asal siap je, die dtg balik lompat2…hihi

don’t worry la..like u said “gifted kids tend to have less hour for sleep”..asalkan diaorg membesar ngan sihat n aktif kan? cuma kite la as a mom kena kuat sket..hehehe..

tu lah mak budak yg x larat nk cope up with their energy level
i pun terfikir pasal kalau terover penat sampai takleh tdo. tp kalau nak cuba tidurkan dia siang, i rasa mommy mmg jadi mommy monster la bila malam tiba. hehe maybe it’s a phase kut. mommy je ada willpower nak menghadap semua ni.
