Well, it seems to finally have happened. We bit the bullets, steeled ourselves to the inevitable chaos, and battened down the hatches. It was time to throw away the diapers at night and go all potty all the time. There's still Pull-ups at night, just in case, but those do little more than contain the worst of it.
But here's the thing: it worked. It's only been two nights, but so far so good. Margot didn't wake up until almost 7 on Monday. Today it was five, but that will help us remember that liquids stop at dinner time.
And that how the last vestiges of infancy left our little baby. It sounds kind of sad to say that, but really, I don't miss changing diapers and the binkie thing has been bugging me for about two years.
Unfortunately, we still have a no-nap situation since the binkie left. I know some people will say that a lit of three year olds don't need naps, but they've never seen Margot after two weeks of not napping. She's touchy after 11, constantly has dark circles under her eyes, and falls asleep in the car at the drop of a hat. Basically, she's overtired.
So, two steps forward and one back. Any suggestions on how to get a three yoar old to take a nap. Especially since Daddy needs a nap too?
