Mea Culpa

Less than two months ago, I posted this...and now, it's garbage, all garbage!

I was proud, I was boastful, and even a little bit cocky.

I read blog posts, tweets, and facebook statuses that complained of non napping children and I thought to myself, psha, not in my house.

Whynot didn't nickname me the Sleep nazi for nuthin. 

I read the studies, sleep is essential for healthy neural development. 

Glitter Gurl napped until she finished kindergarten.  TOF still naps on occasion. 

But with TC we have been blessed with a stubborn, head strong 18 month old, who this past Saturday achieved the dreaded milestone of climbing out of his crib. 

It's all over for me.  But I have learned never again to judge another mother or grandmother that says her kids won't nap.  Instead I'll offer her a shoulder to cry on and swig of what's in my flask to ease the pain.

hope the escape act doesn't necessarily mean total death of naptime!

It's called 'Karma' - and it has come back to bite your butt. You NEVER should have mentioned all the nap time stuff in your blog. feel good if you must. feel cocky, even. But never, EVER, put it into keystrokes. THAT is the kiss of death. As soon as you stroke it, Karma and Murphy (they're cousins, you know) will came and get you.

LOL. What I love is when we lie down with them so they'll go to sleep, then of course we go to sleep and they're still wide awake.

I still don't think my oldest son naps or sleeps through the night.

He's 30.

Oooo you have a Little Miss clone. I feel for ya. That said, I did find a way to keep her napping past the climbing out of the crib stage at that age. I have no idea what I did, but ... she kept napping :) Don't give up! That or fill up that flask....
