I tried EVERYTHING to get her to take a nap yesterday. We played outside. We colored. We watched tv. I gave her a snack (apple slices and a cup of water). I even laid in her bed and watched Alvin & the Chipmunks: The Squeakquel with her (which was cute by the way and I love Zachary Levi <3). Nothing.
After 2 hours of trying, I gave up and just let her roam the house. We eventually went on a walk and go figure, as soon as we walk through the door at 5:00, she falls asleep. I had gone on a Joann's run, otherwise, I would have never let it happen. But, Daddy let her sleep and I woke up up when I got home at 5:30.
And don't you know it, she refused to go to bed last night. When I finally got her down, she woke me up at 3:30 AM trying to play!! She stands at the edge of my bed and whispers in my face.
Shhhhhhh, Mommy sweeping.
Shhhhhh, Daddy sweeping.
Shhhhhhhh, I sweep.
[Gaik = Wake in toddler language]
But if I put up the baby gate or close her door, she wakes up at 3:00 and screams and incessantly until we go get her.
She's been doing this a lot lately and I just don't get it.
Does anyone else have (or has anyone had) this problem with their kids?
She better stop soon or this will end up being me:
