Daytime sleeps wanted – will trade anything

Bits and Pieces

Day time sleeps wanted! (Will trade anything!)

Day time sleeps wanted

 Where are the daytime sleeps?

Bring them back!

Now that she’s a ‘big girl’, all of 3 you know, this sight is a rarity and I’m mourning the loss of any mid-day me time.

I’m not wanting daytime TV, or anything indulgent like that you know, I’d happily settle for an unaccompanied trip to the toilet and a sandwich I don’t have to share!

Luckily, she’s cute!

When did your little ones stop their naps? It’s a harder transition for Mum, don’t you think?!

      It really can be hard once you’ve come to rely on that time, can’t it Mandy! Hope that means earlier nights though x

    With all three of mine I found the loss of the day time nap was hard at first, but great when I embraced it. It means that we are no longer time limited by knowing that if we aren’t home by a certain time that we are almost guaranteed a meltdown, or that we would have the dreaded late afternoon nap (you know the one when they sleep for an hour just before dinner, and then are still bright and chirpy at 9pm?). My youngest started giving hers up at 3 (which was much later than the other 2), but now it means that she is much more resilient during the day on outings, which means that we can get more done, be out longer, and have more fun. Now that I have embraced it, I love that she doesn’t sleep any more. Hope you get to that point too! It isn’t easy at the beginning feeling like you are losing your ‘you’ time :)

      Thanks Sannah – I do know that going to bed in the evening is so much easier when there’s been no nap – she’s exhasuted.
      Some days I feel a bit greedy though and want a nap AND an easy bed time! For me, not her lol.
      You are certainly right that life is much more flexible without it :)

    Well my last child – now teenage son – he never seemed to sleep. It drove me insane. He was always happy with short naps. Asleep for 20 mins, awake for hours.

      Oh Jacana, I hear you, my first boy was like that too! Would take forever to get him to doze off for a measley 15 mins. He loved it like that … me? Not so much!

    What a cutey! I’m dreading the day my 2.5 year old decides to skip day sleeps. They are my sanity.

      Thanks Helen, being a litte bit cute is all that saves her some days! I hope your young fellow gives you daytime respite for a long time to come. Sanity is so very important x

    We’ve been fighting for day sleeps since miss2.5 was miss1.5. Now we have “rebranded” them to be quiet time. she goes down in her cot with every soft toy she owns and 1 day outr of 7 she might slpee. The others she’ll sing, talk, play or cry for 40 minutes.

      I do love the quiet time concept Kevin and think it’s a winner, even if they sing (badly) for their own entertainment. Just have to now convince her that 10 mins is not quiet enough for long enough! The iPad session started as quiet time but she was obviously exhausted.
