I don't know what I would do if Scamp didn't take a nap. I think I would go a little more insane than I already am. God knew moms would need their little ones to take naps just as much as they need naps themselves.
Scamp's nap time has become my "freedom!" When I've just reached the breaking point of taking care of a fussy Scamp or like today, after I've reached the breaking point, she lays down for a nap. And peace once again returns to our home.
It has been hard for me limiting Scamp down to one nap a day. Two naps was heaven, but one has caused me to have to do more things while she's awake, like taking a shower. I usually turn on a TV show she likes (Sesame Street). Then, I tell her I'm getting in the shower. Some days she does fine and watches her show. Others, she finds me hulled up in the shower, peeks through the side of the curtain, and cries for me to get out.
The last few days I've had to put her to bed early instead of her usual 1 o'clock nap time. She has been so fussy that I want to pull my hair out. My stress level is very high even while she's sleeping today. Sometimes, I just don't know why I am so close to the breaking point even when I've had time to rest. Not every day is as desperate as today. Thank goodness! So, if you're reading this, please say a little prayer for Scamp and myself today because I'm gonna need God's help.
