Do you hate it when your kids take long naps? Do you wish for all the silence and productivity to stop so you can go back to changing diapers and picking the kids lunches off the floor. Then you need to read my 5 magic ways to make your kids wake up!
- Jump in the shower
- Start a project that is very messy or dangerous
- Make a cup of tea and sit down with a magazine (just kidding, the magazine and the tea are not important…just try sitting down and taking a deep breath)
- Do a lot of cleaning and then try to reward yourself for your hard work by sitting down at the computer to watch a few blissful minutes of Netflix.
- Schedule a package to be delivered. Every dog in the neighborhood will aid you in your quest to stop the sleeping madness.
On the other hand, if you want the kids to take an abnormally long nap, schedule a fun activity that you really want to attend. This will make it so the kids will sleep in later than normal, take a late nap and then will (for no reason) sleep an extra long time. This gives you very powerful options as a mom. OPTION ONE: wake up your kids, feel bad about it, and deal with their sleepy rage or OPTION TWO: show up late or not at all to your fun activity.
