I know my posts have been sporadic for the last week or so, but I am battling once again with girls who just won't nap during the day. This makes for hectic, frazzled days and short nights. Elizabeth Pantley graciously offered me a copy of her book No Cry Nap Solution last month to review, so I'm going to retire early tonight and see if I can't get some ideas that will help out around here.
Ella had given up naps almost completely by this age, but I know Maggie, Kate, and Sarah aren't ready. I know it with some certainty because yesterday two of them were asleep in my arms by 5:30pm and they were all in bed by 5:40pm... for the night! And they slept until just before 7am this morning. I guess if I have to we can learn to live this way, but they are so grumpy and grouchy in the afternoons that I don't know what to do with them.
Here's hoping the No Cry Nap Solution Book will provide some new insights to this really tired mom!! I'm looking forward to having this all figured out so that I can catch the blog up with all the wonderful and funny things that are going on around here in the mornings while they are somewhat rested.
