Nap time is sacred at our house. This is the only time a mom gets to herself while at home. When I just had Ainsley, I could guarantee myself at least 2 hours in the afternoon where I could do whatever I wanted. I could catch up on my TV or do some work when I worked from home. If I was tired, I could get a good nap. *Sigh* Those were the days.
Now that I have two little munchkins, nap time has changed. Ainsley still has her 2 hour nap in the afternoon, but Juliet is not quite old enough to have a regular long afternoon nap. She still naps in 40 minute spurts and I am lucky if she naps while Ainsley is napping which would give me a 40 minute break. Gone are those restful afternoons that I used to enjoy. I can't wait to have them back. Juliet is 5 months old and I really hope that in the next month we will be in a good routine.
The worst afternoons are when I put Ainsley down for her nap and Juliet gets up from hers and then when Juliet is ready to go down again, Ainsley gets up. Today I had a 30 minute break. I'll take what I can get at this point.
