Morning Naps Are Back!....sometimes

Maya, Camille, and Papa (my dad)

I have a love/hate relationship with the morning nap. On one hand, I get a lot during the time the twins are down. (Like take a shower!) But on the flip side, it really cuts into our day if we have somewhere to be.

For the past 3 mornings I've been trying something new. Call me crazy, but it works for us. I get the girls up between 5:30-6am. Ely is already up during this time, getting ready for work. He's been working so much this summer it's actually nice to spend the mornings with him and the babies....btw, the boys are still sleeping...

Getting up that early, the twins have been happy to go down for a nap at 8:30am. I get to get ready for the day and clean up the house a little, spend time with the boys and help them get ready for the day. The girls usually wake up around 10am...still plenty of time to meet up with friends for play dates and such.

Getting the girls up so early has it's advantages. They are in bed, for the night, between 6:30-7pm. That's AWESOME in my book. It gives me and my hubby time to ourselves in the evenings.

Wow, this entry is very boring...but I wanted to post it so I could look back and remember how crazy I was.

Whatever allows you to take a shower...I say go for it! That is what I dread the most about dropping a morning nap - when will I shower?!
