Nap Please

Have I mentioned that I am tired today? The kind of tired that I feel as if my eyelashes have tiny weights tied on them with tiny little strings. Serious, narcolepsy type tired. So tired I scared myself driving to and from the post office.

And? My toddler is on day four of NO NAP AT ALL. Which I hesitate to admit, but is probably a sign of the extinction of the daytime nap.


He's faked me out a couple of times in the past, but the last few days have been different. As in, I put him in his room and all he does is remove every toy from its basket, every book from the shelf and every article of clothing from the drawers. All while screaming at the top of his lungs.

Things aren't looking too promising.

I tried to get him lie on the couch with me for a rest, but all that accomplished was me being half awake, feeling even more groggy and him hitting me with books he wanted read.

Right now, he's alternately watching Yo Gabba Gabba and trying to hijack my keyboard.

I still need to work out today, clean and make meals.

Time to brew some coffee and pray for an early bedtime...for him and for me!

Yeah, wait until you have more than one kid. Then, although you will still cherish naptime of the infant, you'll still have the other(s) to tend to- yippee! Yeah for coffee!!!!

OMG I am going through the same exact thing with Karissa. I NEED her to nap but she doesn't. Or if she does she waits until 4 PM and crashes and then is up half the night. I am exhausted. :(

Yeah, Clay's not a fan of naps anymore either. One day they'll wish they could nap.

Don't give up on the naptime...even if you have to change the name. When both Jake and Emma gave up their naps, I switched the name to quiet time. They still had to go to their rooms and play quietly, even if they didn't sleep.

Put him in his room and let him scream, he'll get the hint that.

Yes, I'm Mean Mommy.
