And this is what I see:
An empty bed.
Apparently Hailey has outgrown her nap. Most days she will not take a nap- and on the days she does take a nap she is up until 10 or 11pm. But when she doesn’t get her nap she is ready to crash around 5pm and then she is non-stop wild around 7pm. There are some days when she still takes a little nap- when she gets up too early or has had a really busy morning. But most days she just can’t sleep. In place of nap-time we are doing quiet time. We read together for a little while and then I bring her a big pile of books, set a timer and tell her to stay on her bed reading until the timer goes off. I started out with only 10 minutes and we’ve worked our way up to 30 minutes of quiet time. She is doing great with staying on her bed reading. I just thought that most kids took afternoon naps until they were 4 or 5 years old… so I didn’t expect her to drop her nap so soon. When did your kids stop napping?
