I feel like my household could be on an episode of SuperNanny!!!  My two year is still needs a nap because by the end of the day she is so crabby she needs to be by herself, but when having a nap she then stays up until 11:00 pm or later, making for a very long day for Mommy.  My oldest daughter has always been a problem child when it comes to sleeping and she can stay up late, she is a nighowl like her Dad.  So needless to say I am dragging my heels today. 

My day didn't start out that well, my Dad comes to my house and looks after the girls for me and this morning I awoke to the doorbell ringing, so I asked my mom to wait for me while I quickly jumped into some clothes, washed my face, brushed my teeth and dashed out the door.  I loaded on the perfume too, hoping that I am not smelly for my co-workers. 

I don't know what to do about my kids, we have a regular bedtime routine, which usually starts around 7:00 pm with a bath, books, bedtime snack and then tuck-in, well my kids think that the can get out of bed repeatedly, I just don't know what to do.  My kids love spending time with me and want lots of cuddles and kisses but my the end of the day I would just like a bit of down time.  Has anyone had these problems?  Any suggestions?


  1. I've been having a similar problem with my 2 year old. He needs his nap, but then he stays up far too late. We've just been continuing our bedtime routine and he generally stays in his bed talking to himself so I can't really help you there. Just wanted to let you know that I feel your pain.

  2. Thank you Teresa, I would love if she stayed in bed. It feels good to know someone knows where I am coming from. Have a great day!
