I keep thinking that Ellie might be about ready to drop her morning nap, and just go to one long afternoon nap. Apparently I am wrong. I gave her a snack, and then we were going to go to the park. Well, I walked out of the room for a minute because I wanted to check the weather for tomorrow and I noticed that while I was gone Ellie was really quiet. Hoping she had not choked on a Cheerio I went in to check on her and this is what I saw.
Only One Nap, Ugh. June 27, 2008
I’ve been waiting for the time to come when Ellie would go down to just one nap a day. It used to be that when she would take two naps per day, that meant that I got to take a nap when she took her first one, and then clean the house when she took her second one. Well, now I have to fit both of those things into the time it takes her to take one nap. I know I should consider myself really lucky that I even get to take a nap during the day, but those who know me well know how much I enjoy my sleep. What most people consider a nap is not nearly long enough for me. Unless I can nap for at least 2 hours, it’s not enough. I’ve been like this my whole life. I remember coming home from school and putting on my pajamas (remember this is in the afternoon), and sleeping for a couple of hours before doing my homework. I need my sleep. Well, I guess I’m going to have to learn how to get by. Oh no, I just thought about something awful. What happens if Keith and I have another child and Ellie and the new one never share the same nap time. I think that just might be the worst thing ever.
