I know with that title you might think something horrible has happened. That someone or something may have died. Someone didn’t die so it isn’t that bad. But something may have died. My daughters nap time.
If you are a parent you know how wonderful nap time can be. How you can get lots of stuff done during the nap. Well this weekend my daughter didn’t take one nap. Not only did she not take a nap but we kept her busy. So she should have been tired.
So is this the death of her naps? The death of my 2 hours to relax on Sunday after church? I sure hope not. I hope it was just a freakish incident. That the stars aligned and caused a slepplessness to come over my cute girl.
My mom always said she know you are grown up when you want to take naps. I must be grown up. A nap sounds pretty good most days. How do I get my daughter to appreciate sleeping.
We put her down for her nap today and a while later she comes walking into our room and says “I awake.” She came over and sat by me and I let her start to play a game hoping it would calm her down a little but the whole time she was playing she said “I awake. I awake daddy.” Her proud statement sent a dagger through my heart each time.
You think a cute almost 3 year old girl would be easy to put down at night with all these napless days. Ohh you are wrong. So so wrong. But that is another whiney story for another whiney day.
Keep your fingers crossed that the nap isn’t dead. Long live the nap. Please nap pretty please nap survive another day.
