Conundrum

What to do when 3 year old skips nap and falls asleep at 4:30 pm?  To wake him or not to wake him???  (and yes- it freaks me out when he sleeps with his eyes open.. this is mostly closed though)

First off LOVE the green satiny blanket. Have the same one :) What time does he normally eat dinner? Go to bed? I seriously would contemplate waking him for at least a snack, a bath and some cuddles but that is because my crazy little one would be asleep until like 2am and then up and ready to play. you will figure it out. good luck!

i hate that game. in these cases, i wake kid up before 6pm so we can do dinner and bedtime by 8:30, hopefully.

Jesse sleeps with eyes open too!!

I don't really think there's a "right" answer. It's hard to know! Books I've read say you shouldn't let your child sleep past 4pm because it will mess up their nighttime sleep. But sometimes my son WILL NOT wake up until he's good and ready, or will wake up and be REALLY cranky. In that case, I just know he'll be up with me that night. So, I think you need to experiment and see what works for the two of you.
