Return of the No More Nap

Much to my horror, Robby did not nap today and then made it through the day relatively unscathed. Normally a lack of nap would have resulted in major meltdowns sometime around dinner or possibly before. But no, he was going all afternoon and into the evening. He didn’t even go to bed much earlier than [...]


I’m functioning on about two hours of sleep today. This is why kids can be very, very bad for control freaks like me. You can do everything right, so you think - not eat any chocolate all day, not let the nap go too long, make sure the temperature is right, not get too far [...]

Note of clarification

Phase Two - Who’s Your Daddy?

Tonight we begin Operation Sleep: Phase Two - “We love Daddy too.” Let’s note the time: 7:54pm. Hubby is in the bedroom with Sam trying his hand at bedtime; our next step is Hubby involvement. Sam is so close to being night weaned; we’re on the brink of success. I [...]
