OK, so that day I put her down for 2 naps and she was really receptive to it - like she slept for 2 hours during the first one and then an hour and a half during the second one. The next day, she totally screamed on me and was not at all into the first nap, I tried again later at 3 and she slept for an hour. Boo! So, after a pep talk from my cousin, I went back to a one nap dream and tried again. I put her down at noon and wouldn't you know she slept for 3 hours. For 4 days in a row. But sadly, that didn't exactly last. She's been doing an hour and a half to 2 hours at noon now and she sometimes extends her nighttime sleep for 40 minutes. Ill take that though, it means I get to sleep past 7. Yayy!

This schedule has kept me a nice sane mommy for a good 7 months. Then January came and all of a sudden she became VERY resistant to nap time. She would fuss and cry and wine and then sleep for maybe 40 minutes during the morning nap and then do the same thing during her afternoon nap. When she woke up she wasn't her usual giggly jovial self, she would wake up crying and mad at
When did you make the switch or did it magically happen on its own?
So for the first two weeks of January, Munchkin was VERY resistant to nap time.

So we came back home on the last day of December and after a quiet new year's eve, we woke up to the new year at home. It's so strange how every time you spend time away from home you gain a new appreciation for home, no matter where you visit. As much as I love my home though, I realized that I need to do more outside of my home. I'm not sure if that means volunteering, working or networking. This led me to decide that my word for 2014 is focus. I need to determine how to use this blogging space more effectively, figure out how to use my talents in a more useful way and find as many opportunities to grow as I can. Focus. I guess I'm asking for help. How do you/did you find your focus and what keeps you locked in? Thanks in advance my friends!
