I’ve been afraid to mention this out loud for fear I jinx the whole thing, but my child sleeps now. Nighttime has been generally good since she was born, but naps have always been hellish. In fact, that is how I found the time to start this blog. When Viola was 3 months old, I would let her scream in her crib for nap time to help train her to soothe herself. To distract myself from that horrible sound, I started this blog. If anyone has known me or read this blog, you would know that naps have been a rollercoaster…with more downward than upward momentum.
She used to averages about 30 minute long naps. That’s right, about 1 hour of naps per day usually in the car. Bleck. Now, I can put her down to sleep without any crying (for either of us). She curls up with her bunny rabbit, blows me a kiss (Squeeeeeeee!!!), and falls asleep. Its the most magical thing in the whole world. My dad and stepmom just left today and she was positively perfect almost the whole time. I guess this is why people have more kids?
