Yep I did it…by it I mean I separated Little Man and Little Princess for nap time. I had tried one time before and Little Princess had a MAJOR meltdown so I have been leaving them together. Today I reached my limit on them not napping and no real quiet time for mommy so I marched up the stairs pack n’ play in hand set it up in our bedroom so they could still see each other through the door between the two rooms, grabbed Little Princess and all of her things and set it up. Ten minutes later I was back up the stairs (one of the benefits of the up and down) because it sounded as if Little Princess had made it out of the pack n’ play and was in talking to Little Man. When I got up there I found she was just screaming at the top of her lungs from the pack n’ play to her brother in the next room and he was responding (the door between the rooms is just basic glass panels so pretty thin). I rolled the pack n’ play with Little Princess in it into the play room, told her it was quiet time and closed the door. I then went back in to their bedroom and laid Little Man down told him the same thing I told Little Princess and walked down stairs. For the next two hours it was PURE silence ~ it had been a week since I heard this silence and I was in heaven! So they will go to bed in the same room as that has never been an issue but as far as nap time goes they will stay in separate rooms for now. We are discussing if we should separate them in June after Sonny leaves, we most likely will not but it is a discussion we need to have.
You all may not be that proud of me but I am, my biggest mommy guilt is separating them for any period of time. The way I see it the only thing that they have had their whole lives is each other. They have lost so much in their short little lives that I don’t want them to think they have now lost each other as well. A little unreasonable on my part but still something that I thought about any time I thought it might be time for separate rooms at nap time. I will need major help when the time comes they need separate rooms (in just a few short years)…so stick around that will be tough. We already know that we will keep Little Princess in the room adjoining ours as she is known to wake up in the night. Her toys will be moved to that room and the toy room will become Little Man’s room. The big storage in the toy room will move to the sewing/guest room (currently Sonny’s room) and the storage (which is VERY similar to that in the toy room) in that room will move 1/2 to Little Princess’ room and 1/2 to Little Man’s room as it is two pieces. We actually discussed moving each to their own room in June but I think I would have heart failure so we will wait until they are 5 or 6 unless they ask before that OR we adopt another child then the whole plan changes…hehe
So I leave you with the ONE picture of the day….how cute is this:
Also I have tons of posts and pictures to get up, I am trying to be a good little blog reader again and I have a few projects up my sleeve! So here is the deal, I will post that days post and 3 back posts every day until I am caught up (should be about a week) I will do the posts oldest first…
