On the good days, she sleeps until 7:30 or 8 in the morning and takes a two hour nap early in the afternoon. This has happened maybe twice. On days like today she sleeps until 7:30 or 8, takes a one hour nap early in the afternoon and gets pretty fussy about a half hour before dinner time. Other days she refuses to take any naps and falls asleep two minutes after we starting driving somewhere in the car, or she wakes up at 6 in the morning and we end up going back to two naps again. Our daily schedule and routine is totally out of whack and I never know when I'll be able to go anywhere or do anything until I see what time she wakes up in the morning. I never know how much to try to do during her nap because I have no idea how long she's going to sleep. I have no idea if I can get dinner made because that's about the time that she just wants to be held if she hasn't slept enough.
I hate messing with the status quo, but when it clearly isn't working any more, I know that I have to. So I'm hoping that this period we're in now is just a transitional one. I'm hoping that all of this will get figured out and we'll be back to some kind of a routine and some idea of normalcy. I'm excited about the possibilities that one nap hold, but am honestly missing my morning time to myself a little bit. I really enjoyed that few moments at the beginning of the day to get myself in order and get ready for the day. We will get through this of course and there are worse things that could happen in the world (by far!) but right now, I'm hoping this won't last too long. It will get better right???
