A Wife Loved Like The Church

Silly mommy

Posted on: February 25, 2009

Julia has been sleeping like an angel this week. She’s taking 1 1/2 hour (or more!) naps twice a day. As this never happens on a consistent basis I am LOVING it. Granted I’ve already told myself 1) she’s in a growth spurt (which explains the massive amounts of food she consumed last week) 2) don’t get use to it. 

This afternoon I put her down a little early, hoping she’d be up in time for playgroup and because I was d-r-a-g-g-i-n-g. I laid down and within 5 minutes heard her fuss. I told myself to give her 10 minutes, that if she didn’t stop I’d need to get up and let her play till closer to 2-2:30 before getting her down for a nap again. Next thing I know I was sleeping. Then she woke up. Without a second thought, I jumped up and went in her room.

Can you say silly mommy?

Clearly Julia took this as a sign that it’s time to wake up. But she’s only be down (not even sleeping) for 30 minutes. I let her sit on the potty for a few minutes, then put her back to bed. She cried for about 5, but has been quite now for the last 30. Hopefully I’m in the clear. Granted she won’t have much wake up time before the other kiddos arrive, but hey, at least she’ll be well rested. 

And as for me… I would have thought I’d learned my lesson by now. Never go into her room until I know for sure she’s actually awake and not just talking herself back to sleep. Silly, silly mommy.
