A few weeks ago, a choice was thrust upon me: Keep Emily’s nap time or keep her bed time. I tried both and instantly saw the advantages and disadvantages to either decision.
Once Ben quit his night/weekend job, I made the life altering decision of taking away her nap time.
It has been two weeks and I have already eaten forty times my weight in chocolate. I knew I enjoyed the quiet time while she slept, I just didn’t realize it also kept me sane.
While this isn’t the ultra positive (snicker snicker) post I try to write on Wednesdays, it is real. And, heck, I’m not ashamed to admit I am this close to locking my little girl in her room for the whole day. By 2 I have already texted Ben 1 million times asking him why I can’t move her bedtime to 3.
Still, once 6 rolls around and we have tucked the babes in bed, I am glad I made the change.
At least until 9 am the next morning.
