Oh where, oh where could they be? My kids have always been great sleepers. You could always count on a decent nap and a full nights sleep since they were about four months old. Well all of that has come to an abrupt end as of last week! I don't know what is going on but these kids think that they can run on an hour nap during the day and an eight hour night. Seriously??!! I can barely function on that. They have been going down at 7:30pm every night with no problem. They are exhausted, but come 3:30am, they are up and ready to roll. They open their door and holler at us, I go in and tell them it is way too early and it is time to go back to bed. They oblige and sleep for another thirty minutes and then it starts all over again. We go through this routine about five times, until finally it's 5:30am/6:00am, and I just give up. So the mornings around here have been way rough for the past week. And then comes nap time. They are exhausted. I'm talking, barely able to function tired, so you think they would take a great nap, but alas, they are down for an hour and then they are ready to cry, I mean play for the rest of the evening. I just don't know what to do. I'm exhausted, Jake's worn out, and the little darlings have been way less than pleasant for about ten days now. I'm praying this is a phase like the one other time. Please, please, please, just let this be a phase!
Here is one of our more pleasant moments, few and far between these days! It's just a phase, it's just a phase, it's just a phase!
