My kids have decided to stop taking naps.
I have decided to stop being nice about not taking the required naps.

I tried to separate them into their assigned bedrooms. They cried and screamed and didn't want to be separated, especially my daughter. I feel so bad because they need each other that I put them back with the warning "stay in bed or you will be separated". Two minutes later they are out of their beds, arms flailing, legs jumping and fun in full throttle.
I give up.

Today I am going back to my endocronologist for a checkup and make sure my 1.5 thyroid is fully working. I have been feeling great but the last two days I have been so tired. I am hoping that my thyroid is in full function because I would rather not take any more medication for the rest of my life.

I am going to the homeopathic doctor next week so if I do need medicine for my thyroid I am hoping he has an alternative to synthroid.

That is it for us today, we will play outside and enjoy the great NJ weather we have been having lately. It is going to rain all weekend, so we have got to enjoy it now.

    I NEVER want my son to give up his nap (he'll be 3 at the end of May). I make him stay in his bed for 2 hours, whether he sleeps is up to him, but I NEED that 2 hour break. I'm sticking to it until he goes to Kindergarten :-)

  2. If my daughter decided to stop napping, I'd get nothing done, lol- she gets into everything while she's awake.

    I miss NJ's weather- born and bred there- but now I'm in FL, and it's 90° here today! YUCK.

  3. Have you tried anything besides synthroid? It wasn't working so well for me, so my doctor switched me to Armour Thyroid, made from pig thyroid, and it works MUCH better. It smells like pork, tho....

  4. I hated that my daughter gave up her nap. Did you get an earlier bedtime out of it? We didn't. :(

    Can you run them around outside and wear them out? :)

  5. Stacey, I still make them get in their beds and rest even if they don't nap.
    Kristen, I don't knwo if I could live in FL
    mona, I am not on any medicines yet, I am just hoping to not have to take anything!
