Alice is in the middle of a Nap Strike. I hate it.
Nobody better tell my mother, because she’s about to keep the girls for 4 days for the first time, and if she finds out that Alice isn’t napping, she’s going to be MOST unhappy about it.
Hopefully Alice will be better-behaved for my mother than she is for me in this area lately.

If Alice’s on a nap-strike, can I be a scab and take her job? PUHLEEZE?
LOL at Sarah… .
I feel your pain, E. Mike tries to avoid napping on Saturdays. He does great all week at daycare… But. Not. On. Saturdays.
Yes, but how wonderful you timed your second honeymoon during a nap strike. Brilliant, I tell you!
Prediction: Alice will wear herself out daily while we’re gone and nap soundly.
Prediction: Jerry will be on vacation and not worried about it.
Emma continues to go on nap strike OFTEN…we get MAYBE 1 nap a week. However, she has quiet time everyday, in her room for about 2 hours as I figure that’s about how long her nap should be. Mean? Maybe. Saving Mom’s sanity? Definately! Theo’s already not a napper. It’s great. Oh, and tonight is the first night in his room, in his crib! Yahoo! I’m anticipating a night of numerous awakenings, but I must break him of the habbit of sleeping in his swing. If it’s swinging (all night long) he’ll sleep from 9:30-7:30. The swing has been a crutch for me for obvious reasons….Have a GREAT trip!!!
Quiet time is fine with us, too. Sometimes I think the break (be it sleeping or just quiet) is for the parents as much as the kids!
Excuse me. Not kids. Helen corrects me when I say “kids” because, as she tells me, “kids are goats. I am a children.”
They teach her all sorts of things at that school…
