Sleep deprivation and awards (maybe, I might be hallucinating)

My three year old finally collapsed. After returning him to his bed approximately 1,999,999 times, I gave up and let him run around the family room while I sterilized bottles, played on the computer, and put away laundry. He has fallen asleep still holding a book on the bottom stair. It is 1:00 a.m. I used to love it when he napped during the day, but, I feel that way no longer, because even the shortest of naps overcharges his batteries and then we have marathon sleepy time struggles like we experienced tonight. I. Am. So. Tired.

    Any silver lining with the sleep? Ahhhaha that's funny huh.
