Down to One.

Did you hear the wailing and gnashing of teeth coming from my house this week?

Ellie has officially given up her morning nap. I've known the day was coming for about a month. This week I bit the bullet and have let her stay up. Mainly because no matter how long I left her in the crib she didn't sleep. She did, however, wail at the top of her lungs like someone was beating her. Since I don't want my neighbors to call Child Protective Services I surrendered and gave up her morning nap. But I moved everyone's afternoon nap up half an hour. Shh! Don't tell the boys about that.

Oh, and the wailing and gnashing of teeth? That's totally coming from me! 'Cause every momma knows she needs nap time more than the children do!!

Amen on nap time being more for me than for them!

Amen! It's so tough to give up naps. I have fought every stage with both my kids. I will hope for you that she will sleep a little longer in the afternoon or at night!

I completely agree! My 3 year old (that STILL naps for hours a day) gave his up early for someone who always liked to sleep as much as he did. However, the afternoon nap is still going strong. I thought he was ready to move to every other day, but I think he's in a growth spurt or something, so he's back at it every day.

It definitely makes me a happier mom.
