One of those bad days…
We brought Ayden to his weekly gym class at BeeBop Circus as usual last Saturday evening. The difference was we woke him up early and was out of the house since morning (as I had some errands to run) and headed directly to the gym at 5pm without him getting a proper nap. I thought he’ll be okay as he has been looking forward to attend this once a week class all week especially with the haze that deterred us from going to the playground in the evenings.
He started off happy as usual. Can you see him smiling there? They were having a Jungle Animal theme this week and the props look so fun.
Suddenly, he can’t decide whether to continue or start being grumpy. It is obvious he is tired. It shows on his face.
His head was just too heavy to continue further..
And he decided to freeze there and then.
I tried to talk him into joining the rest of the kids but he refused. He wanted to run around by himself instead of going through the given tasks and when I carried him back into the group, he started crying. After 20 minutes of non cooperation from Ayden, we decided to take him out of the class so as to not disturb the rest of the kids and headed home.
He dozed off immediately in the car. No wonder he was not his usual self. I was a bit annoyed earlier when he was being difficult but now I understand how important it is for a toddler to have enough sleep and be well-rested especially if they are going to meet people. Ayden was just too tired to even bother trying to be nice. Next time I’ll stick to our routine of staying home until after his nap.
