School's Out Day 18: Guess who won the great nap debate...

There are many a night recently where Maddy will be in her crib from 7:30 to 10:30 pm or later....talking to herself, laughing, singing, crying off and on, yelling "poo-poo, poo-poo" which always gets us to go in there and then we go in there and she's faking us out -there's no poo-poo!(note to self: cancel neurology appt. - there's nothing wrong with this kid's brainwaves... see yesterday's blog). Anyway, just yesterday morning (after her late night Thurs. night) my husband said, "You shouldn't let her nap in the afternoon, that's why she can't fall asleep at night." I don't know about you other Moms out there, but I would rather cut off my left arm then cut out her nap. It is THE ONLY time I can get ANYTHING done and I'm pretty sure my sanity depends on it. Coincidentally, we were at the beach all afternoon yesterday and she did miss her nap....and she PASSED OUT at 7 PM until 8:30 this morning. Hmmm, could hub be onto something? WELL, WELL, WELL... GUESS who was home today with her, and not only let her nap, but let her nap for 3 hours. Because he had to cut the grass, trim the hedges, pay the bills etc. AND GUESS who is on hour two in her crib right now singing twinkle twinkle little star to herself? And guess who is going to bed now to ignore all the madness? You guessed it! Goodnight!
