40 Winks

What have you been up to?  We’re back in the thick of nap hell.  Although, almost predictably, after three days of craziness things seem to be back to normal.  Maybe?  Please?  For three days she woke up after sleeping for just an hour during her only nap.  One hour just isn’t long enough.  There was crying.  Lots of crying.  Mostly because she was still so exhausted but there’s not a lot of room for reason at that point.  

Gosh, it was probably more like 45 minutes.  And I can always tell when she hasn’t had enough rest when she wakes up crying.  Eventually she would go back to sleep but not without the crying.  Last night, she was so tired that I put her to bed at 6 o’clock.  She slept through the night, woke up at about 6:45 and was asleep again in the car by the time we got home from dropping Chase off at school this morning.  I put her down again for her usual nap around 12:15 and then had to wake her up at 2 o’clock to be on time for pick up.  We had another early bedtime tonight and hopefully that gets her back on track.

I don’t know, I suppose it could be teething or that she started walking in earnest just in the last few days… Monday I think.  Or it could be a combination of those factors or something I haven’t thought of and maybe I should stop guessing.  I’m glad that things were back to normal today because I wasn’t sure what I was going to do about nap time today.  Phew.  That was rough.

More thoughts when I pull them back together.
