I'm asking for your help today. So, I am absolutely looking for answers and to hear your feedback :) So here are my scenarios and questions.
Did anyone ever run into sleep troubles with their 2'ish year old? Like, out of the blue they go from sleeping amazing to having more trouble? For instance, recently Emeline has totally full-faced-about from our normal bedtime routine. We used to take her upstairs, bathe, jammie-her, read to her, and lay down for bed, in one big swoop. But now? She will FREAK OUT if we do that.
So, we bathe, jammie, and have to bring her downstairs to wind-down some more. She either just plays with some toys, watches a show with us, or drinks some milk. THEN, she is totally ready for bed a bit later.
AND-she is going to bed a whole hour or more later than usual. Now, I know she's getting older--so maybe she just requires less sleep? She's sleeping from about 8:30pm-7:45am, and napping for about max of 2 hours a day. Does that seem like enough sleep?
I won't even get into the fact that a few times a week she's been waking at least once, screaming in pain (or something)---I'll just blame the eye teeth for that one. It usually just requires a momma cuddle and she's back down, but still. Weird.
Will this be the death of me? I kid. But really. Why is this so hard?
The side by side's look great, and also look like something that would be much easier to use for exercise purposes, walking/running with kids, etc. HOWEVER, they are so big that basically it SEEMS like I'll never get to go to the mall and properly walk in a store again with that gigantic, wide kid-pusher.
But then, if you get the tandem stroller, basically they steer like crap, feel like you're pushing a 2 ton bus, however you have the ease of fitting through hallways, doorways, and store aisles because they're thinner.
HOW DO YOU WIN WITH THIS? Seriously.
Also, I may add that I don't have the luxury of buying two double strollers at this point, AND, I really am not stroller snobby, at all--meaning I absolutely do not prefer to spend ungodly amounts of money on a stroller.
So I'd like to hear your feedback about double strollers--which you found to work for your family, and for the love, will I EVER LEAVE THE HOUSE when I have two children? At this point I'm thinking no.
Love ya, smooches.
