"So how's the sleep thing going?"
Let me tell ya, I've started to dread the question (no,not really) because I know that I'm about to admit, again, that I got beat by 3 kids. So in case anyone else has been wondering but not wanting to ask, here's the lowdown.
They're back in cribs.
Yep. Naps, bedtime, ALL the sleep times. :)
It's not forever, but apparently it's for now again! Here's the thing- and this IS selfish so do try to control the eye rolling after I say it. :)
I am SO not willing to give up the 3 hour nap just because they want to play in their room. Like I said, I know that's selfish, but unless you've raised triplets you just can't imagine how much I cherish that 3 hour chunk of the day.
And it's not because I don't want to see them or play with them, it's just the opposite actually. The problem is that I would play with them all day long and never get anything else done. And I actually have another job AND a house to keep up. So I really NEED the nap. (Well I need them to need the nap. I just need the time.) :)
So here's our plan of attack- we're gonna keep them in cribs a little longer. At least until they regularly escape. Which they have not done for a week now.
In the meantime, we will buy 3 twin beds (and three new mattresses). Which is the other reason we're gonna try and keep them in cribs for a little while longer...give us some time to afford 3 beds and 3 mattresses! :)
So that's Operation Sleepy Time for ya.
I'm thinking about these beds....cuz they're cheap. :) Gotta love me some I.KEA.
(And I apologize for the lack of kid pictures. I haven't taken any new pics in a few days!)
