3:30 pm - 5 pm / Arrive 40 minutes late to pool party. The one way to ensure your toddler will take a long nap is to make plans near the end of his usually short one.
5 pm - 6 pm / Endure howls of boredom from said toddler as we ran unavoidable post-party errands in the Trophy Wife Wagon.
6 pm - 8 pm / Mildly disgruntled play, dinnertime, and bedtime preparation
8 pm - 8:30 pm / Endure howls of protest as said toddler refused to go to sleep, despite considerable direct evidence suggesting state of exhaustion (mine & toddler's).
Because of course it did. Of course.
