Defeated!



Totally defeated. Not her. Me. This is what I had to do to "win" today. After two days of her "playing" in her room instead of napping, today it was going to stop. But after an hour and a half, I had to pull out the pack and play. We both had had enough. So into the pack and play she went and fell fast asleep. I feel like I lost. And I'm totally exhausted from this battle.
Not looking for any pity. I know the routine. I've been through it with the boys. I remember them doing this for WEEKS after we first moved them to their real beds. I suppose it caught me off guard because she's been fine in there for months. It's a phase, I know. But I don't have the extra time or energy to be dealing with this. Certainly not this week. So I feel very defeated today. Sigh.

It's kinda like the popsicle day, right?! Sometimes a "mama's gotta do what a mama's got to do".

Well, in MY eyes, you WON! Eventually, anyway :). I think she must be so excited about her new ability to rock a ponytail - how could she possibly sleep?! :) Tomorrow is a new day, and will hopefully be a little easier on you!

Katy, Bradley defeated me as an infant...so you are way ahead of me. The child still refuses a nap, unless we are in the car! He could scale that pack and play as soon as he could stand up! AGHHH..i feel for you!

Yes, I played this game with my 4year old today - and finally had to hold his 'shower with daddy' hostage. Whew, so glad it worked! Stay in there!
