I'm Done With Naps

This is one post I never thought I would write.  I, Melissa of Completely Eclipsed, have just about had my fill of naps.  Let me explain to you.  Isabella will nap about 50% of the time.  She's less than a month shy of her 3rd birthday so I still think that's pretty good.  However, to get her to nap is like trying to summon Zeus from Mount Olympus.

Who wants to sleep when wandering the house is
much more fun?
Like for reals, you need to coax, coddle, story tell, dance around, touch your 9th toe four times, squeeze your ass cheeks for 2.7 seconds and hope for the best.  Once she's asleep, you run a 50/50 chance that she's going to wake up a complete and utter bear.  "Don't talk at me.  Don't touch me.  Don't look at me...NOOOOOOOO I said don't look at me!"  That my friends is not an exaggeration.

Then the fun part begins at bedtime.  Because she's so freaking well rested that she just doesn't want to go to sleep.  Yeah, so if she takes one she takes one, but I'm kind of over the whole nap thing.

I've gone to "stay in your room from 2:30 to 4 and don't destroy anything" time instead of "nap" time. I could coax her to sleep, but I don't have the patience anymore and I'm enjoying the slightly earlier bedtime! Good luck!
