The Crib Tent

After nearly a week straight of Kenna not napping, I was feeling desperate and on the verge of insanity. NOTHING was getting done--next to no homeschooling, definitely no house cleaning, and very little if any Christmas preparations. This child is more work than my other 3 put together! Thankfully a couple of friends reminded me of the great invention known as the Crib Tent. I told Ted that this could be my Christmas present, and he stopped and got one on his way home from work yesterday. Now Kenna can climb neither in nor out of the crib--and even though she didn't nap today, at least I knew she was contained and safe! It did make me wonder, though...yesterday and Wednesday she actually took good naps! Did having the Crib Tent today keep her awake and mad?!

I'd opt for "safely contained" whether she actually sleeps or not. I think we introduced the crib tent at night so that it was dark and Evan wouldn't notice it as much...or at least that was my theory. We told him it was a special lion's cage for him, and the first few times he slept in it, he'd roar for us after we zipped him in. LOL

My kids have been getting up at 6 a.m. or earlier for the past few days. They did great sharing a room the first week, but now it's royally stinking. I am so tempted to put him back in the crib/tent in his own room...
