Unanswerable questions

Why does it take 20 minutes to put Aiden down for a nap, but an hour and a half to put him down at night?

Which is worse, ethically speaking: causing an accident due to intoxication, or causing an accident due to obliviousness?

True -- but it's harder to pinpoint the cause of obliviousness, so it's hard to say what rules were being ignored. There's a whole lot of depends there.

The gal who hit us apparently just didn't notice that we were slowing and turning. But she was horrified, and I think it's pretty likely that since she was so young, it's going to be an important lesson and behavior change for her. I hope so, at any rate.

On the nap/bedtime thing: I bet he knows which is which, and that at bedtime it will be a really long time before he gets to see you/play/etc., so he puts it off as much as possible. Where for a nap, he knows it won't be long, so no big deal.
