Galen has learned enough about our world to anticipate future events. Needless to say he was literally clawing at the door when we tried to put him down to sleep tonight. Ewan had anticipation too, but after 1/2 hour he fell asleep. Galen did not, he just kept getting antsier.
So finally I looked at Mike and realized the wisdom in opening the gifts Christmas Eve. Have an early dinner, open gifts and let them play for a few hours before bed time. That way the worst of the anticipation is over and everybody sleeps. So we let Galen out and brought him upstairs to open his stocking. He did and then calmed down alot. We got him to lay down, quietly even for a few minutes. Do you think he'll ever sleep tonight?
