I seriously LOVED the 2 naps a day, I did. I hoped and prayed it would never go away, even into her teen years, cause God know's I'll need it then. But I always hoped Evelyn would love her naps.
My child loves the world, she loves the play she is content to entertain herself while I do things, such as write this blog. So the fact that she has found more energy that she decided to not take her 2nd nap...burns me out.
I used to sit down and lounge with a book or the TV or clean...mainly clean or do whatever I had to do with the TV to listen to. Now its like....I have an hour..maybe sometimes 30 minutes to do what I got to do. It tough I wont denie it. I am used to those 2 naps and getting at least one nap to sit and be myself for a minute. Now I don't get that.
I love my child to death and I absolutly love being a stay at home mother, and I hope I can continue that for a long time. But I am having a hard time adjusting to it, I miss having that spare time to be me. I got to find some way to be myself, to be my blogger-self, be Liz and be just a person.
Evelyn and I are starting to work on her schedule a little more. She wakes up at 7:30 and I should probably start waking up at 7. She goes down for her nap at 11:30...and usually its a fight. But I am working on it still. P and I think she's just hungry and thats why she's having a hard time going to sleep, so tomorrow we will be eating and then going to bed and seeing if that helps her nap longer, or if it makes no difference.
Evelyn cannot tell me she's hungry so dont think I am being mean and putting my kid to bed hungry.
I didnt think it would take this long to get her settled into a different routine but it is. So I appologize for not blogging. I am still trying to find the time to be Evelyns Mom/ P's Wife/Housekeeper/Blogger/Liz.
