Schedules and Naptimes

by Lisa Donovan

It seems my daughter has decided she doesn’t need two naps a day.  I knew it was coming, I just wasn’t ready for it.  She has been resisting her morning nap for about a week now.  In fact, as I type, she is in there telling me exactly what she thinks of me.  This is how the a.m. naps have been going lately.  We read our naptime story, kiss Mac the bear and Strawberry bear naptime kisses and give each other naptime kisses - and what is supposed to happen is that she curls up on her Hello Kitty pillow, like she used to, and falls asleep.  Not so much.  I am not ready for this change in our routine, but looks like I have no choice.

So, instead of two naps a day we are sizing down to one in the middle of the afternoon after lunch.  This is apparently normal toddler behavior - my first born didn’t nap at all so I have no point of reference.  That being said, I suppose I should just be greatful that I have had this long to enjoy a kid who loves to sleep - when I think back about my son’s complete resistence to any form of rest it sends a shiver down my spine.  Those were long days, indeed.

So, with spring comes a new regime in our household.  On the brighter side, I will get to enjoy much more of her burgeoning, brilliant personality - she is becoming quite the fascinating little person.  Yes, it will be cutting severely into my “work” time but there will always be things “to do” -  this time is rare, we can sleep later….
