The past three days the boys have had weird sleeping schedules. As in, they won't go to sleep right as I put them down for their morning nap but if I get them up, they are all yawns and red rimmed eyes. Then they crash at 11am, sleep through lunch, up at 1pm which is when Butterfly has her quiet time.
This also means I don't get any quiet time. And since Mommy does not get a nap every day (I tried making it a rule, Butterfly didn't go for it. Dang.) I need quiet time.
This also means that the boys are bears by 4pm. I could technically feed them dinner then and put them to bed (in which they will sleep through the night until 7am) but then Juice never sees them. So I keep them up. We've had a bad case of the "witching hour" here lately.
Honestly if they are not going to sleep for their morning nap, I'd like to move them to an afternoon nap starting at 1pm like Butterfly. But I don't think they are going to last that long. I could put Butterfly to bed early, like at around noon but then I have a VERY long afternoon with the kids who are cranky. Hmm...
Maybe this is just a phase. Maybe they will go back to doing two 2 hour naps a day. I'd like that. Maybe Pirate will stop stealing Professor's binkie and throwing it on the floor. Yeah, that'd be a nice one too.
