Dindin is one baby who doesn’t need much sleep. She would sleep overnight and would take a 1- to 2-hour nap in the afternoon and that is it.
But sometimes, she doesn’t get to sleep in the afternoon because of some social functions that we attend to and she is fine with it. She can go the whole day without napping and still not make a fuss about being sleepy.
Take for example last Monday. She didn’t sleep after lunch. At 4pm, she got sleepy but then we were on our way to Jollibee Lacson to attend a birthday party. When we got to the party venue, she just snapped like she was wide awake all of a sudden and played the whole time we were there.
We went home around 6pm but then I had to cook for a dinner party that we were going to. So I left her to the care of a helper and instead of sleeping, Dindin just played. At 7:30pm, we left the house to go to my brother-in-law’s house where the party was going to be held. And Dindin just went on and on.
When we got home around 10:30pm that night, my husband and I watched Glee because Dindin still refused to go to bed. Then there was this scene where the students made a TV commercial for a mattresses company and they were jumping all over the place. Dindin followed them and also jumped around our bed. Grrrr!
Finally, we just had to put our foot down on the matter, turned off the lights and pretended to be asleep. I don’t know how long Dindin tossed and tumbled in bed, but all I know is, Dennis and I both slept ahead of her! LOL
