Ever since our monumental decision to stop nursing was put into effect, I've been exhausted.
Utterly, fall on your face, need numerous sodas, exhausted.
Why, you ask?
Well, our once well coordinated bedtime routine (which always involved nursing) is all screwed up leaving me with a wound-up toddler that doesn't go to sleep until 11:30 or 12:00!!
Of course, a later (much later) bedtime often results in sleeping in. This screws up nap time. Sometimes sleeping in late results in no nap, or Roo thinking it's nap time at 7:00pm and waking up at 9:00, ready to play.
It's exhausting just writing it out!
I understand that I screwed with her 21 month tradition, but I thought since she handled the elimination of nap time nursing, she'd recover from this just as nicely.
Any hints, suggestions, rubber mallets (Just kidding)?
This Mama needs her sleep.
