Nap today was late since she was having fun playing with her brother, so she did not enter into nap time willingly. I knew I was in trouble. So after twenty minutes of what I call the Nanny Jo special, she finally gave in and stayed put. The key to a happy family is consistent parenting, but damn, it can be exhausting. I know it is better in the long run to have the kids put their toys away alone all the time, but really the fact that it can take thirty minutes at times makes me give in a little.
So here I am entering into a new phase of sleep training and I know that consistency will yield the results I want, but it does not mean it will be easy. So here I go with back in the crib, door shut, wait outside, door open, back in the crib, door shut, wait outside door opens repeat repeat and lose your mind. Wish me luck!
