Like I said before, just when you think you’ve got an area of childrearing mastered….your kids change.
My boys are nearing 14 months now and until now they have consistently had 2 naps per day unless our schedule disrupts that for some reason.
Today after a long, wearying battle with one of my sons…who shall remain nameless…I was at my wits end trying to get this kid to go down for his morning nap. He gave all the tell tale sign of being tired- you know….rubbing his eyes, grumpy, leaning on mommy constantly etc….
After 45 minutes of trying on and off I had to admit that Dylan…oops, I mean my child, won the battle!
Usually when I get frustrated like that I have to take time to cool off in a corner by myself- in the fetal position.
After feeding the boys their lunch, giving them their bottle I realized that maybe they are just transitioning from two naps down to one!
Wouldn’t you know it today one took a 2hr. 15 minute nap and the other a 2 hour 45minute nap.
The good thing about this is they SHOULD hopefully go to bed at a “decent” hour for mom and dad.
Looking forward to time with my hubby tonight once the boys are settled for the night. Yes, it’s been one of those days!
