We are a nap-free home!

(except for Wednesdays). 

The week before Dza Dza came to visit, it was a STRUGGLE getting Sarah to nap.  It seemed like I spent 30 minutes getting her 'ready' and then I'd have to go in there every 10-15 minutes for over an hour before she'd finally settle down enough and sleep.  It was making me stressed out and cranky, so I just let the naps go.  We've been doing okay.  Sometimes the days feel really looooooonnnnnggg....but not all the time. 

The one exception is Wednesdays, when Jeremiah has Cubbies and Sarah has Puggles.  The kids are up later (830/9pm) than their normal 7pm bedtime, so they have to take a nap!

I just love this photo of Sarah.  She is so funny - we've been calling her "diva" - which turned into Jeremiah calling me a diva.  (I told him divas like to look pretty all the time, and he said: "Well, Mommy, you always look pretty."  Awwwwwwww!)

I think I'm going to have to give up the nap time, too. I'm dreading letting go of that free time, but Makayla is the same way! I have to go in there every few minutes to get her settled down, clean up the mess she made in her room, put her back to bed, blah blah blah. It's more work than it's worth some days! And then other days, she goes to bed without a peep! So weird. How old is Sarah?
