Reagan has been fighting us tooth and nail over the last few months about her nap. I think both Sarah and Nick continued to take one until they were well past the age of 3, but Reags at 2 1/2, has already thrown in the towel or maybe I should say, blankie:)
It is hard because she wants to try to keep up with Sarah and it is very clear that she does not want to miss anything that goes on around here. She has A LOT OF ENERGY and will go all day, but as of late, she is hitting the wall around dinner or shortly thereafter. She has fallen asleep while still sitting up a few times and then she will doze for an hour or so and then wakes up ready to party, when we would normally put her to bed.
She was once such a great sleeper and went to bed without hesitation, but now she not only refuses naps, she does not want to go down at her normal bedtime either. It is frustrating and tiresome……. and I am starting to wonder if it is time to switch from the crib to a big girl bed?
Maybe that would help the situation…
For now, we are trying to insist that she lay down somewhere for an hour of quiet time, even if she doesn’t fall asleep, at least she can try to rest a little to get her through until bedtime.
I don’t know about you, but I would give anything to be able to close my eyes each day and not think about anything for an hour or so. Reagan might think naps are overrated, but I sure don’t:)
Hope everyone is having a great week!!
3 more days of school here and it is officially summer…..whooohooooo!!!
