No naps? … for five days! Please someone tell me why my 22 month old child has more energy than me? and without naps…I feel as if I am running on fumes and she is just running circles.
Vey has been a bit restless at nap time for me since she hit the 12 month mark. I work part time so 3 days a week she is with my mother and usually will nap like a champ for her. On days Vey is home with me however, naps are a hit or miss.
It seems as if we have hit a halt with naps this last week. Friday, no nap for my mom. Saturday & Sunday home with us, no naps. Monday for my mother, no nap. Today with me, you guessed it …no nap again.
I take it you all get what I am stressing about. How do I find time for laundry, dishes and all around sanity?
Today when T got home from work I had already been 8.5 hours deep of nothing but madness. My head felt like it was about to pop off. He decided we would order dinner so I didn’t have to make it, thank you lord! Then we decided to head to the local park and maybe let her get tuckered out of an early bed time. It seems as if she caught her 45th (exaggerated) wind of the day.
Even after running around, fresh air and a warm bubble bath. Her energy is still going and going. We have a prompt bed time for her every night which she does great with but now I am wondering if the days of nap times and a little alone time are gone!
I appreciate my 10-12 solid hours a sleep a night she gives me so I don’t want to be too picky. I just worry about my little one as I always will. I don’t want her to be too tired or feel stretched thin.
[[For the first time in a blog post I am also asking for advice and for anyone to tell me if they have had their child stop napping or taking a time out from naps. ]]
Thanks in advance.😘
