So, I had this post all planned out. We were supposed to go to a birthday party yesterday for a one year old from mommy group, and I was going to blog about how the open house style, low key party makes so much sense [because, even though I’ve never been to one, I’m psychic like that…] as opposed to those who host grandiose 3 ring circus parties for their one year olds [because I have been to those, and they scare me].
But the Magpie decided that yesterday would be a good day to have only one nap. Starting at 12:30. Until 3. That kind of screwed the birthday party since the invite said 12-4. I was in disbelief – we can’t really be entering the realm of One Nap. I thought my theory of a one-off was proven this morning when I finally convinced her to nap from 8:30 to 9:45am. However, it turns out she really wants only one nap and it does not matter when that nap is. I swear to god, she did not nap again at all – and went to bed on time at 6:30pm.
I’m freaking out. Her schedule is not set up for one nap per day. Music classes, getting together with other moms and babies, her meals. I have to rethink things – and I didn’t think I was going to have to do that for another 3 months! So, I now have to try to get her to nap a little later tomorrow morning, because we’re meeting friends at noon, and hope that cuts it.
I was looking forward to this – you know, when it happened in the future – and it seems like it should free up much bigger blocks of time and it will be more worthwhile to get out and do more things. Now I just have to catch my schedule up with her…
