For several weeks now, Isaak has been protesting against naptime. He lays down readily enough and falls asleep almost instantly. That part has never been a problem.

The issue has been that once I announce that naptime is either approaching or imminent, he stages a protest using one or more of the following arguments:

"I'm NOT tired!"
"It's NOT naptime!"
"I don't WANT to take a nap!"
"Naptime is bah-humbug!"

Coincidentally, we have also been working on not talking back.

So, today, with half an hour to go until naptime, he came looking for me.

Isaak: "Mommy, is it almost naptime?"
Me: "Soon."
Isaak: "Good!"

He just likes to keep me on my toes.
