So the Tiny one isn't sleeping anymore. She's just NOT TIRED at night. She's always ready to crash at naptime; however the "solution"? (according to everyone else, including the husband who leaves every morning before the kids get up and returns home just in time to A)eat dinner and head up the night time routine or B) just kiss 'em good night).
The HORRIBLE solution is NO MORE NAPS.
Nope. No More. Never Again.
An hour of peace and quiet for a mother constantly on the brink of an emotional breakdown? History.
An hour or two of rest for a mother who's only chance to get things done is late at night when everyone else is asleep? Nada.
I was aware this time would come e-v-e-n-t-u-a-l-l-y. But my youngest is only 2, and my oldest didn't stop taking naps until she was 5!! We have been taking naps EVERY.DAY for the past 5 years! I am the naptime Nazi (according to BFB), and our whole world revolves around that regimen! I just don't know how I'm going to cope.
Even the dog is annoyed at the munchkins running around like out of control monkeys just freed from an inner-city zoo, tired, hungry, and hyper as hell. (They better not fling any poo or I'll be SO **%$#@@!! and then I'll send 'em back to their cages for lockdown!)
And so it is written. So let it be done. NO.MORE.NAPS!!
