Entering New Territory

Things have been a little crazy around here the last few days. Actually, I should say things have been crazy the last few days and nights. Charla has started wanting to hold onto a tissue while she falls asleep. I have no idea what started this obsession with tissue but something triggered it a couple of weeks ago. In the beginning, she would want one when she started crying. Then it progressed to if I told her “no” about something. Now she wants one to fall asleep. However, then she wakes up in the middle of the night and the tissue has traveled to the foot of the bed or is hiding under her blankie and she can’t find it. That’s when I get the call, “Charla needs kleenex”. For now, Tim and I decided to let it be, it’s not that big of a deal if she wants to sleep with a tissue.

Then there’s been the napping issue. I always knew Charla would give up her daily nap a bit earlier than average and we seem to have hit that time. Nap has become a battle of the wills, hers against mine. It’s not pretty and it always involves tears, mostly Charla but I’ve come close as well. Today she cried through her entire nap. I expected the evening to be a total nightmare but she was surprisingly pleasant. At bedtime tonight she asked me to sit by her for a little bit. This is something that started when she transitioned to her big girl bed, I will sit by her for about 5 minutes while she settles, give her another kiss and then let her go to sleep. Well, tonight, Charla was asleep before I even got up to leave! Tomorrow will more than likely be a nap day. She has to be up a little earlier because it’s a school day and she will probably need to catch up a bit from skipping nap today. So, thus begins our journey into no-nap land! Remember when I said she seemed to be gearing up to hit a new milestone? Yeah, I think this is it!
