So much for doing my laundry. The unpacked suitcases will have to stay put for another week and I will have to resort to wearing clothes dug out of my hamper and sprayed down with Febreeze for one more week. Nap time, pleeeeeeeease go back to normal. I don't want to go to the nut house!!!

Sleep, please come back!
One of my favorite times of the day is when my kids take a nap in the afternoon. My sanity relies on that nap time (I've realized that my sanity rests on a few specific things/times in my day). It is the time of day when I get to read, blog, clean up, etc. I usually have that 2 to 2 and half hours very planned out. I know exactly what I am going to do with that time. However this past weekend my kids have tested the strength of my sanity by ruining nap time. They have thrown a wrench in the routine and have refused to sleep. For two days, they both talked to each other for an hour and a half before I gave up. The next day I decided to put them down one at a time. I waited for one to fall asleep then I put the other one down, that didn't work either. Today, I tried that again but with the opposite child. Here I am an hour and a half later listening to Maia talk very loudly in her crib and praying that Noah stays asleep despite Maia's loud chatter. I cannot do my normally planned out routine because I am on the verge of an anxiety attack begging God to keep Noah asleep and please let Maia finally fall asleep. But, I know exactly what will happen. Noah is going to wake up as soon as Maia falls asleep. I will have got nothing done and will be in a bad mood because I didn't get anything done on my list of things to do during nap time. Arrrgghhhh! This is why I am begging God for a bigger house where my kids can have their own rooms and Maia can chat to her little heart's content during nap time because she will be in a separate room and I won't have to worry about Noah waking up.
