I have decided to join a brand new blog carnival. It is hosted by Mama Jenn.
For this carnival you set a goal and try to accomplish it. If by the end of the month you have, you get a mission accomplished button.
My goal this month is to once and for all GIVE UP THE NAP. No not my kids……ME!
I have had the luxury of having both boys be great nappers. So for the past 4 years I have had a nap in the afternoon, while they sleep. I don’t mean just lying down. I don’t mean a 20 minute cat nap.
I am talking about a get in your pajamas, get in bed, and fall fast asleep for a good 2 hours…NAP!
Obviously it affects my sleep at night. Not to mention that my 4.5 year old no longer naps so he is spending too much time in his room playing/watching tv/bouncing off the walls.
So my goal is to give up the nap. I will still have 1 hour of quiet time per day, while Monkey has his quiet time, and Alligator sleeps. During this time I will read, or play on the computer or watch TV, but not sleep.
Then I would like to get up and have some one-on-one time with Monkey. He needs it, and so do I.
I’ll keep you updated as to how it goes.
