Bedtime usually is not a war here at home. Tonight…it will be!
Mistakes Made Today
Mistake #1 Letting my 3 yr old sleep in till 10:30 Am on a weekday. Yup! you saw right…till 10:30 Am. Its fine on the weekends because us old folks get to sleep in, but big mistake during the weekday.
Mistake #2 Taking a super late nap. They got in their beds at exactly 4:23 Pm for their nap! The kiddos usually take a late nap around 2ish, maybe 3 and are asleep till about after my husband comes home from work. I do my husband the favor of having a quiet house when he comes home so he can just sit back and relax without the kids hanging all over him like a jungle gym. I am such a GREAT WIFE!
Mistake #3 Not waking them up from their super late nap. When they take their late naps I wake them up so that bedtime comes easy. Not today. The house was so quiet and I was all snuggled on the couch with my blanket. I wanted to hang on to that moment and listen to….absolutely nothing!
The Final Result
After 3 hours of playing, coloring, watching Home Alone and having their bedtime snack….the kids finally went to bed at 11:17 Pm on a school night. This is only acceptable on Friday and Saturday nights…hahaha! Finally gonna go to bed and see what tomorrow night brings. They sure tired me out today!
LOVE being a MoM!
