The day was bound to come! I've been dreading it for a while. This week, however, was the worst week that it could have come.
It's officially time for Gracie's nap time to come to an end.
She will sleep for a couple of hours every day, with a little bribery, but then she is up running around until 10pm or later every night. Not cool!
As if the realization of this wasn't bad enough, I've come to accept that fact that I also have to stop putting Lylah down for her morning nap. Again, she'll sleep, but then she wants nothing to do with her afternoon nap.
I don't know about you guys, but I need that afternoon nap time! I'm not going to lie, I do my laundry and tidy up yes, but all while watching One Life to Live and General Hospital! Yep, i do! Don't judge!
I guess now if Gracie is going to be up, we're going to have a bit of a problem with that, aren't we? I will somehow have to convince her to play downstairs and put that TV on for her while I sneak upstairs to catch my shows.
You all realize what else this means right? IT means that I'm no longer going to have a single second to myself during the day. No more making a coffee, grabbing my laptop and plopping down to creep Facebook. No more morning emails while Lylah sleeps and Gracie is in school. Heck, my blog time is even at risk!
Obviously, i'm not quite as "accepting" of this "end of nap time" realization as some may be. In all honesty, I think it sucks!!
I'm looking for suggestions today. Does anyone have any ideas or tips to make this transition a little easier, or a way that I can keep naps? If not, some tips on how to keep my sanity would be greatly appreciated!
Have a great day ladies, I'm taking my girls shopping. I can't seem to find fake limes anywhere so the hunt is on!
I'd also like to Thank everyone who sent their concern for Lylah. She is doing fine, to me, she seems perfectly healthy. I'm hoping she IS perfectly healthy and this is all nothing. We are still waiting on a call to get our appointment time for Hamilton. In the meantime, Mommy is going crazy (literally) while waiting for the call.
