Avery is down to 2 naps from 3, which means I have to do alot more entertaining. She's usually up around 8:30 in the morning. This used to mean naps at 10, 1 and 4 with bed time at 8. Well for the last week, she was taking up to a half hour to fall asleep for any nap, which pushed all naps back, which pushed bed time back. That makes for an unhappy Mom.
So i made the decision to cut out the 3rd nap. So, now she's still up around 8:30. But her first nap isn't until 11:30 or 12 if I can help it. By about 10:30 she's grumpy, tired, whiny and just wants to be in her bed. So we go for a walk, drive to the store, play outside or I pretty much carry her around. Then she'll sleep for an hour to hour and a half which is till 1ish usually. Then by 3, the whole thing starts again. I don't want her down before 4, cause she sleeps for an hour which means up at 5 and then I have 3 hours till bed time. AHHHHHH!!!!!
I vaguely remember this whole transition with Caden. I'm not enjoying it. Not to mention that now I never have both kids napping at the same time. Caden naps from 1-2:30, right in between Avery's naps. This is not fun. But, whats a mom to do.
