I'm currently blogging from the girls' room during nap time. This is what it has come to because I cannot stop Teagan from waking up Quinn.
Quinn has been in a toddler bed for a while. It is old news now, so she sleeps well. Teagan was forced into a toddler bed because she would not stop climbing out of her crib.
Quinn loves nap time and falls asleep within minutes. She unwinds quickly. Teagan is another story. She used to lie in her crib and happily chat to her animals before falling asleep. Quinn REALLY needs the nap. Without it, she's a nightmare. I understand. I'm the same way. Teagan needs a nap too, but perhaps not to Quinn's level.
I tried sitting outside the room, calmly entering and putting her back into bed when I heard her get up. She would get up quietly though. I couldn't hear her and walked in to find her waking up Quinn about almost an hour ago. The little punk knows what she shouldn't do too. She told me when I first put her down, "T stays in big girl bed." She followed with, "T doesn't wake Mini." So, now I am sitting here as she flops around her bed.
She didn't nap for the last two days. It was a disaster. On Tuesday, I had them in bed and asleep before 6pm. That bad.
Letting her nap in another room isn't an option. The playroom is next door, but it is full of toys and doesn't have curtains. I'd also need somewhere for her to sleep.
Hopefully the big girl bed will become old news to her soon. It is all a phase!
Any and all advice will be happily accepted.
