No, its not a post for me missing my naps.
The boys are being quite the stinkers about napping lately. The last week or so they just mostly refuse to, I can hear them playing and what not, but they know its nap time, so they don't cry to get out. Eventually they fall asleep on the floor and wake up maybe 30min later, which is just not enough. When they miss their nap or take a short one they are seriously grouchy come about 6pm (bedtime is at 8). I mean screaming about anything and everything for the next 1.5-2hrs. Its awful! The last few weeks they have also learned to somehow get the child doorknob lock off their door. They don't take it off every day, but every few days, and then they come out. Today they did this, and when I went back upstairs to put them in bed Abram was showing me his hand, "ow hand". and his fingers were bleeding, I asked what he hurt it on and he said, "winnow" I ran for their bedroom, and thankfully the window was not broken, but their cheapie blinds are all bent up, so I am assuming that it what he cut his finger on.
I have a friend with 4yr twin girls who were just a handful. She said she sat in their room on the floor at naptime for a year! A year! And that now (at 4) they have no problems and will stay in their room even with the door wide open. For one, I don't know that it would work with my clingy babies, I think they would just be wanting me to hold them, so I would have to stand the entire time, and even then, I just don't know. For two, that is not always feasible. Nap time is often my only time to get showered or have a minute to use the bathroom in peace, or relax for a minute. lol. And a few times a week I watch my cousin's daughter who is almost 3. I can leave her unattended to play for a few minutes while I get the boys down, but not longer than that. My friend had an older child too, probably preschool age at the time.
