I am finding it harder and harder to get my newly 3 year old to go down for a nap, before I would lay her in her bed and she was sleeping in minutes, seconds sometimes. Now I have to lay with her in my bed and we fight for about 45 minutes to an hour before she goes down.
I would just let her not nap but she is a cranky bear by 6 pm if I don’t and then at 8 she is exhausted and we put her to bed and she gets up at 11 and decides to stay up until 2 or 3 am. This cycle is killing me because I have three other kids who need my attention.
I also am sad because nap time is really the only time I get to work here writing my posts, taking care of giveaways and networking to bring you all some new and fun stuff.
So I am saying a little prayer today, please let Maddisyn start to nap like a good girl once school starts again and we start going to the Parent and Family Literacy Center. I need those nap times just as much as she does.
