Sleep fight leads to crash landing

VIGO COUNTY, Ind. (FTN) – A Vigo County toddler is paying for his decision to skip a nap.

The incident happened Thursday at a southern Vigo County apartment.

According to the child’s mother, Ami Essex, one-year-old Alexander decided to skip his nap, making him over grumpy and tired.

“I was on him. I tried like three times to get him to take a nap earlier in the day. He was all…nope,” Ami said.

Around 6:00, a full two hours before bedtime, Essex pulled a blanket up and stared blankly at the tv from the couch.

“I was thinking early bedtime! This will be great…boy was I wrong,” Ami said.

He was up for about three to four more hours after this photo was taken.

His mother her said he started getting really grumpy around 8:30.

Ami says Alex has been staying up later and later in an attempt to fight sleep, making it to almost 11 one night.
