Early bedtimes are not equal to naptimes

Here’s a post about something that will be of zero interest to singletons. A toddler’s afternoon nap is better than her early bedtime. I don’t see the charm of early bedtime. At bedtime, one is already too tired to do anything but vegetate in front of the TV watching netflix duds. Which of course means you sit too long and go to bed late – so that the toddler wakes up bright and early (due to early bedtime, of course) and you wake up dreadfully tired. An afternoon nap, on the other hand, is prime time. It’s day time, you are still productive, and you can get something done while the toddler sleeps. In any case, you can rest a bit in time for the toddler’s next shift.

And there was my uninteresting post.
