What else can I do!!! Help? Belle De Jour 2 kids; Kentucky 18239 posts

Ok so my kids are 1 1/2 and 2 1/2. They both take naps at daycare still but don't seem to like to take them at home :? I keep pretty much the same schedule as the daycare does so it's not like I'm throwing them off.
Well they refuse to take a f**king nap! :? Last night Reilly was up until midnight! She's never up that late! She was up messing with her sister, poking her, throwing toys at her, trying to sleep with her, etc.
Then she woke back up at 7am! :shock: :cry:
I'm exhausted.
Now it's an hour after they should have been down and I've literally removed every single toy and all their books and they are STILL getting out of bed :(
I don't know what else to do to make them go to sleep. They are exhausted. You can see the circles under their eyes and they keep rubbing them. But I just can't convince them to go to sleep :x

Car ride?



My kids don't nap for me either but will for the nanny :x



Or maybe put a movie on they can at least lay down and rest.

SO has the car :(
And I had a movie on but I just turned it off because it's the last thing I could take away for them getting out of bed :(



I hate it. I go in there and put them back in their beds and then as soon as I close the door they both just start giggling :? Little shits :lol:

That's y they're not sleeping I bet. My girls 3.5 n. almost 2 feed off one another during naptime until I separate them. One in the room n the other in my bed w me. She fights it hardcore but eventually she knows she isn't gonna win. The second they're separated the youngest passes out in the room within minutes. If I don't separate them they'll fight naptime for 3+ hrs. We've had to remove toys n books as well. There is a small tv on the wall w a DVD player. Movie goes on repeat.

Me too! They have been home since thursday! :x
I would separate them but that doesn't seem to work either... I just checked on them a second ago and they were both awake but both in their beds so I guess we will see what happens.

I really hate doing the movie thing :( My oldest is obsessed with having one on in her room at this point and SO and I are really trying to remember to turn it off at naptime and bedtime. I wish I had never put the damn thing in their room but I missed my big people tv :( :lol:

Lol I never thought I would say I was more excited to go to work than to see my children :oops: :lol: But I am. Mommy needs a break from little people. I think the whole being sick has just made it 10x worse :x



And thanks. It seems like they are finally giving up. Crossing my fingers :lol:
