Every day Rudi has napped beautifully, at midday without any resistance Rudi would sleep for two hours straight. No fuss, no drama, just a solid block of sleep. I would take this opportunity to clean the house, do all the chore… ok not really , I would lay down my weary head and join him. I relied on this event heavily. I knew it wasn’t wise to rely on nap time as much as I did, I knew it wouldn’t last forever (though I don’t see why not). I lived constantly with the fear that one day Rudi would decide it was time he was awake for the majority of the night and then all of the day.
I spent hours obsessively sweating over the internet googling ‘when do kids stop napping?’ and praying that Rudi’s would last until he goes to school.
This week was the week I had been dreading, Rudi upgraded to his ‘big boys bed’ and now refuses to nap in the day. I don’t know how he does it, by 8pm I am on the edge, I could sleep on a witches tit.
I have survived the first week and I was right to fear this moment, its tougher than I thought!
