This morning, Rylee missed her morning nap. She decided to poop instead. At first she just played and talked to herself, but then she started to fuss and cry. After about 45 minutes of waiting for her to go to sleep, I gave up and went in to get her. That's when I discovered she had taken a grumpy. Ayden was sleeping, so I had the brilliant thought that I would give Rylee a little milk and try putting her down again. While I was getting her milk, she took off down the hallway intent on waking her brother. I caught her just before she entered his room. Rylee then proceeded to scream her head off because she got caught, which of course then woke up her brother. Sigh.
I spent the rest of the morning listening to both of them alternate between being cute little innocent toddlers playing together and then being cranky butts. Mostly they were cranky and whiny. Particularly Ayden. He has now mastered the art of throwing a temper tantrum. He buries his face into the floor and then kicks his feet when he doesn't get his way. He did that the other day in front of Tony and I and we couldn't help but just laugh at him. It is pretty funny, although I'm sure we won't always see it that way.
Finally, it was time for afternoon naps and both of them went to sleep fairly quickly. Thank goodness. I debated on taking a nap. I really would love a nap, but then I thought I should write something because I've also really been missing out on blogging. So here I am, but wouldn't you know it, Rylee is now crying. Sigh. She's only been sleeping for about 35 minutes. And now she's woken Ayden with her crying.
This is why I don't ever have time to blog anymore. I'm thankful for my babies of course, but I sure would love to have good nap days again. It wouldn't even be so bad, them skipping out on naps, if they wouldn't be so cranky the rest of the day! Oh, and they also have been struggling to sleep at night lately too. Did I mention how tired I am?
