Way over the limit

If truck drivers can only drive for 14 hours until they're considered to be too tired to function properly, I am way over the limit. I need a break. Middle of the night swaddlings and feedings prohibit me from being "off-duty."

Tell me why it is that on the days when The Duckling only takes one nap she only sleeps for one hour.

I mean, really.

Some days if she naps at 10:30 AM she can go for two hours or so, but then there is no afternoon nap.

8:00 AM- wake-up
12:40 PM- put her down for a nap
1:40 PM- up and awake...tried to leave her in the crib until signs of going back to sleep

Why? Why, why, why?!?!?!?!

Thankfully the whole "put them to bed early so they sleep longer thing is working."

Her new bed-time is 7 PM and she now sleeps until 8 AM whereas when she used to have an 8 PM bed-time she was up with the freakin' birds at 6:30 AM.

What do the birdies say?
"Get up Duckling! Get up!!!!"

Nope, they sure don't say chirp, chirp, chirp in our yard.
