Tell Her to Sleep!

Can someone please come to my house and explain to my beautiful little girl that sleeping really is awesome?

I don't understand what has happened lately, but she doesn't enjoy sleeping at night anymore. The afternoon nap is so easy. She goes right down, I mean after playing for 3 hours straight, who wouldn't want to sleep?
So... out she goes, then sometimes she crashes around 5:30 for like a half hour before she is back up til 10!
See.. Mommy really really needs *my* time. Do you feel me? I mean, I just need time to unwind, think about life and reflect on the day.
Ok, who am I kidding? I need time to pig out, blog, chat online, watch a movie and maybe drink a beer or something! Mommy needs MOM time!
Apparently, my cute, chubby (*ahem* please notice her thighs in that picture! lol) baby thinks she should hang out with mommy and daddy and party all night.
I don't go to bed til close to 1am, but I wish it was earlier. I would even be ok waking up earlier, if I went to bed earlier, but I like to have two hours to myself to relax.
Oh well.
I guess it is just part of motherhood. I am just lucky that, for the most part, she sleeps through the night. I remember when I would have done close to anything for her to sleep through the night, just once. Now, she does it on a regular basis.
I am beginning to wonder if maybe it is time to cut out that late night, quick nap and try to get her down at 9pm. That might be a good idea, right? If she goes down earlier, she will be up earlier though.. but then I can go to bed earlier and get up earlier.
Sometimes, like now, I wish for an "off" button, so we can switch them off for the night and we all get the rest we need.

I mean, I know God and I trust God, but I think he forgot that off button.
