One Tired Papa…

Posted in etc. with tags , , , , on 11/15/2011 by Papa Nerd

I love my son to death.  He is the sweetest boy ever created, in my humble opinion.  I wouldn’t trade him for anything in the world.

That said, I’ve got a little problem.  He hates to sleep.

I have a hard time keeping him in his bed for naps, and he wakes up at 5am, on the dot, every day.  I can put him to bed at 7:30, or even 10:00, and he is still up at 5.

This is a problem, as my job won’t allow me to get home before 2am a lot of times.  So, a lot of days, I walk around, half asleep, looking like a freakin’ zombie.

What can I do to get him to sleep a little later, outside of drugging him up (which I would NEVER do)?  Do we need to do away with naps?  If so, on those days when I am running on one to three hours of sleep, I’ll probably fall over at some point, since I wouldn’t be able to take a nap.

Any other dads (or moms) out there dealing with this?  Have any ideas?


Welcome to Papa Nerd!

Who the heck is Papa Nerd?  Me, that’s who.  I kid, I kid.  I’m a guy who is a stay-at-home dad, aside from working part-time at night (papa).  I’m also a life-long fan of comics, movies, video games, and, sometimes, pro-wrestling (nerd).  See what I did there?  I’m a papa and a nerd.  Hence, Papa Nerd!  God, I’m so damn clever.

Anyway,  I realize there is no shortage of snarky nerd blogs on teh interwebz.  But, what about a blog for the growing population of stay-at-home dads?  There are plenty for moms.  But we guys get no love.  That’s what I have set out to do. Give the guys some love.

Wait.  That’s not right.

I’m going to post snarky nerd news, reviews, opinions, and the like, but through the eyes of a dad.  Sometimes, for the sheer hell of it, I’ll post something random.  Like this:

Darth Vader. Riding a cat. Word.

 But, again, I’m a dad, so I’ll be talking about my experiences with my two-year-old son. For example, I think he is some kind of evil super genius.  He acts completely different from other kids his age.  He looks at them as though they rode the short bus to the playground.  He already knows how to get girls to chase him around, the little stud.

That's right. I'm a pimp.

Sayonara, for now.  I’ll be back…
