We seem to be having a very difficult time the last month or so with nap time around here. I wish I could communicate with the Beauties that they should relish in their daily nap while they can, however, I would be wasting my breath. Obviously. I just do not understand. I would take a nap, or maybe even two naps everyday if I could. Not to mention, Mommy really needs the down time during their nap. Time to catch up on everything else. I also really enjoy having that one on one time with Chloe. In the last three weeks I think they have taken maybe four really good naps. About six forty-five minutes or less. The rest of the days within that time period...napless. Those of you who have toddlers know...no nap=crabby kiddos.
So what s a girl to do? They play in their cribs. They giggle. They throw their loveys and blankets on the floor. They chatter. They have started taking the clothes off (my favorite), they take their diapers off too occasionally. Sometimes they fuss. I go in and check them about every twenty minutes or so. Always keeping them in their room for at least hour if they do not go to sleep. Then the night time routine is crazy. They all want to be held all night. They fight more, bite more, usually do not eat as well...because they are tired.
How can I get them to take their nap? I truly do not feel they are ready to forgo the nap yet, and neither am I.
