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?
