No Naps!

Today was Z's first Monday without daycare.

I didn't have any plans for the day, other than to eliminate her daily nap. See at daycare, the children are allowed to take anywhere from a 2 to 2 and half hour long nap in the middle of the day. This means that my child's bedtime has been hovering around 11 PM for the majority of her life.

It also means that our mornings are full of tears, threats, time outs and running late (not that we have to worry about lateness anymore - we make our own schedule now) because she doesn't want to get out of bed in the morning.

So today, even though there was a period around 4 PM that I almost gave in and forced her to nap, we took nap out of the equation.

Wanna guess whose child went to bed without complaint or fight at 8:30 PM? Wanna guess who may actually get into bed before midnight tonight?

If you guess this momma, then you are so right.

Happy Monday to all!

  1. Sometimes you just have to follow your childs needs and if they don't need a nap they don't. Jake takes a nap everyday from 1-3:30 and goes to bed at 7:30-8. He does play in his crib at night for a little while which is okay with me.

  2. Yahoo for no naps :) I need to weed out my little boy's naps. He just turned 3 and I think it's time.
