We’ve been having SO much trouble with this little angel at bedtime lately!! She wants to stand up in her bed and dance and sing for two hours or more after we put her to bed, no matter how many times we go upstairs to give her some ‘correction.’ That is, if she isn’t climbing OUT of bed!!
So, I finally decided what the heck…..she ain’t going to bed easy anyway, we might as well move her on out of the crib……so I took her bed apart and moved it into Sissy’s room, and put the toddler bed rail on……..and Baby A was THRILLED!!
I did all of this while they were playing, and she came into Sissy’s room and saw her ‘new’ bed, and yelled, “WOW MOMMY WOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!” So funny how thrilling the small things are when you’re two. 🙂
And I’m happy to say, last night, for the first time in weeks, she laid her sweet little head on the pillow, and went RIGHT TO SLEEP. No singing, no dancing, no climbing out……
I wonder if she was feeling discriminated against, being the only one in the family confined in a bed that she couldn’t get in or out of? Maybe we just needed to make her feel like she was ‘big.’ Or maybe last night was just the ‘honeymoon’ stage and its all going to break loose tonight. We’ll see. 🙂
MEANWHILE……..how ’bout that DAVID COOK?? I hate to say I told you so. 😉
