You have dumped and blocked him on FB, deleted his phone number and blocked his incoming calls, yes? Because I know his type. He doesn't want to take "no" for an answer when it is not on his terms....

I would actually wager it's not the nap transition, but rather teething that's causing the issues. My DD was the same, and it was a nightmare. Either some tylenol (if you're down with that) or a...
