Madelyn. My Own Sleep Ninja.





Madelyn has been fighting going to sleep lately.

She used to be my girl who would practically beg for bed.

Now it's a battle of her vs mommy vs sleep.

She tries every trick in the book.

More water.

Cover up.

Potty.

Stinky.

Fan on.

Fan off.

Once she realizes that I am not going to come to her room with all said requests she starts in with her Mo-mmeeeeee. MO-mmeeeeee. MO-MMEEEEEEEEE!

I know naps won't last forever, but girlfriend needs a nap. A day without naps in my home is equal to a day from hell.

Take my word on that one.

I didn't wean Wyatt's nap until last month, and he's 4 1/2. Hold onto them for all they are worth (wink).

I remember when my cousin went through that stage. Not my favorite at all.

oh yes.. isn't that fight so tough! Be consistent and you will win :-)

consistency is the key...and we lost that battle during the spring. occasionaly Will falls asleep on the couch in the afternoon but this kid has some energy!

Oh my goodness we are dealing with the exact same thing here with Meridian! I think her and Madelyn are close to the same age (born in May 2009)! A day without naps here would be hell too, so there is not way in well, hell, I'm giving it up! Instead we go through it all every night as well! Sigh...hoping this stage will pass soon!

Oh, we were totally there this weekend! And, 3 is not old enough to ditch the naps. After about a 1.5 hour battle, she FINALLY gave in...and then I had to wake them both up for dinner!
