Oh no, is this a new phase?

Two weeks ago, after Alex had his second afternoon at daycare without a nap, the new teacher in his room asked Molly, “Alex really fights his nap. Does he do this at home?”

“Oh no!” we said. “Alex has no problem going to sleep at home, but that’s probably because there isn’t as much interesting stuff happening.”

Well, we’ve now had a weekend where Alex has vigorously fought going to sleep. He screams when we leave him for naps and when we leave him for the night. Luckily, the screaming is over within two minutes and then he’s sound asleep. But still, we’re so used to having a good sleeper that we’re not quite sure how to handle this new development.
