Only 8 hours? Really? #*(&$(*&#$
The more Sophie walks, the less she sleeps. I know this is normal and I shouldn’t be surprised. But, when it’s me FINALLY getting her to STOP fighting sleep at 11 pm, and it’s me she wakes all night, then it’s me she wakes for the day at 7 am… IT’S ME WHO IS GETTING PRETTY ANGRY ABOUT THIS!
Part of the issue is that she is trying, I think, to give up her second nap. If she doesn’t take a second nap, she is asleep within minutes just after 8 pm. If she takes a second nap, and believe me, you don’t want to be around her when she needs one, she suddenly is up later than I want to be!
So today, she is not getting a second nap, and I don’t care how horrible things get around here. So, if you decide to come to my house today, be prepared for a lot of screaming and crying from a kid who can’t figure out where to put her sleep. Day or night. I’d prefer night, but those nap-breaks during the day sure are nice…
They do grow out of this, right? I mean, Will probably won’t be crawling in bed with Daddy at midnight when he’s 13, right? What is that, 10 more years of hell plus whatever Sophie dishes out?
