Giving up

I wish I had an explanation for it, but it seems like lately Kaden has had his fair share of temper tantrums.  He gets overtired and then there is no reasoning with this child.  Nothing you say works, he just loses it.  The other night, after a battle about which toothbrush to use (because "he doesn't care if his teeth fall out"), which PJ's to wear, etc., we were at a loss for what to do.  I told Andy to just leave him in the hall where he was throwing a fit.  Usually us trying to solve it or talk calmly to him makes it worse.  After 15 minutes, we went to check on him upstairs.  We figured we'd see 1 of 3 things: Kaden laying in his bed sleeping, playing upstairs, or sitting in the hall calmly.  Well, we found a combo of those things.  Sound asleep in the middle of the hall.
