We are experiencing some nap time woes lately.
The week before our trip to Florida, Madeline decided she didn't like napping. She napped one day out of the four before our trip. It was my hope that she would get back into a schedule while in Florida and she did. She was so tired each day she napped like a champ.
Then we got home and she decided napping was for suckers. She struggled through nap times sometimes falling asleep in her chair, sometimes reading in her room for hours and never closing her eyes.
Then we went to IA and she napped again. At my parents, or Kevin's parents she naps. In those situations she is confined to a pack 'n play and she has no choice but to nap I guess. Being able to exit her bed is the issue. Books are too enticing not to read.
Sunday was no exception. I could hear her for at least two hours reading books. She was reading lines from classics like "Hop on Pop" and "Put Me in the Zoo." She even broke out some of the new favorites "Edwina: The Dinosaur Who Didn't Know She Was Extinct" and "There's a Monster in My Opu."
Then, 20 minutes before dinner, she is silent. When I go to get her, as we are already late to our dinner date, this is what I find:
Face down in a pile of books.
What am I going to do with her?
