I win!

Today I successfully managed to get all three kids down for a nap at the same time!!

AND...

...Reuben and V actually slept in the same room together!!

How did I accomplish this may you ask?

Well, I put V down for a nap first in a playpen in Reuben's room. After she fell asleep I put a loud fan on in her room, and then I closed her door and put O down for a nap in a playpen in Tim & my room and closed that door. He cried for about 5 minutes. Then when he was quiet I checked to make sure that V was still asleep, and she was, so I read Reuben a story and put him down for a nap in his crib. And voila! All 3 kids napping at the same time! I ended up with about 1/2 an hour to myself where I could actually rest and close my eyes on the couch without worrying about which kid is going to get tackled next by O or which kid is going to get upset b/c one of the other kids took their toy away or anything like that. It was quiet and it was heaven.

I hope that I can repeat this again tomorrow...

Woohoo! I hear ya on the 1/2 hour of quiet time being bliss... Unfortunately Hannah is now giving up her naps - so not cool. We still enforce "rest time" though and it usually overlaps with Emily's nap by a little bit at least. I hope you get more days like that! I never understood how daycare centers managed to successfully get 10 kids to nap at the same time in the same room...
