Where have I been?

wrapping gifts? NO!
putting up my tree? NO!
sending out x-mas cards? NO!
blogging? NO!
baking holiday cookies? NO!
eating holiday cookies? I WISH

Chasing a 15 month old around for 12 hours at a clip! DING DING DING! YES!

... and that is where I have been. Why? because I can't seem to find an ounce of time for myself! and so I bring you...my toddler schedule! We are in the process of moving from two naps to one nap...and Eliza has gone from sleeping 3 hours a day to sleeping 1 hour and not wanting to go to bed!

7:30 wake & diaper change
7:45 breakfast!
8:00-10:00 Play Time
10:00 Snack
10:15- 1:00 Play
1:30 to 2:30 SLEEP!
2:30-3:00 Snack
3:00-5:30 play
5:30 dinner
6:00 play MORE!
7:00 bath
Bed???? Eliza doesn't want to sleep anymore. Who needs any stinkin sleep. I usually end up in our bed with her around 9.

UM... OH YEA! Where is the me time? Has anyone seen the me time?????

$100 Reward
I will pay $100 to any person who can locate my free time and deliver it unharmed to my home in New Jersey! On the other hand, I am so confident it will not be located I will raise the purse to $1,000!

hey at least you get an hour of free time... I'm lucky if the boys naps overlap for 20 minutes!

When Blake switched from 2 naps to 1 nap it took a while for him to get in the swing and then his nap got longer and he was taking 3 hr naps and is now shortening to 1.5 hour-2 hours

you will figure it out

I think your free time is hanging out with my free time- somewhere between the land of far, far away and the disappearing isle! If you find it, let me know so I can get it back!

N has been narrowing his naps to about an hour to maybe hour and half a day. I am really missing that extra hour.
Hopefully you will get ur sanity back soon!

Multiply that by two. Stella downs't want to nap anymoreand Madison wants 24/7 attention. She is obsessed with letters and learning to read and doesn't understand what it means to take a break.

Sleep!!!! These darn babies are KILLING us.

Ugh, I hear ya. We're doing ok, between 3 naps D sleeps about 2-2.5hrs right now. Tho I do occasionally also get times like now, when he's happily playing with a box in the room and I can sneak off to the computer. ; )

I'm kinda dreading when he goes down to 2 and then 1 nap.

I do remember hearing advice from a few people, that when a nap went away (like when going from 2 naps to 1, or 1 to none) the mom instituted a "quiet time" policy where the kids still had to play quietly or hang out in bed during that time, so mom still got somewhat of a break. Not sure how well it'd work with a 15 month old... If her room's pretty well baby-proofed, would she let you get things done while you guys hang out in there and she just plays? Or does she need your attention all the time?
