My daughter really needs one. LaLa is 3 years old. Someone please tell me why I can't get the kid to bed before 10pm. Regardless of what time we start getting ready for bed, she doesn't fall asleep a second before 10 pm. Often it's much later than that. Her 5 year old sister, Noodle, goes to sleep without much problem most times before 9pm.
Last night LaLa fell asleep at 11:45PM. This was after spending all day at school, then heading to the swim club after I finished work. Silly me, I even put her PJs on for the ride home thinking maybe she would be so tuckered out she would fall asleep in the car. Not a chance.
She laid in bed, she laid on the floor. She went in her room, she came in my room. She got a pillow to lay on the floor. She laid on the floor singing to herself for 30 minutes. I was totally okay with that, BTW, if it meant she was going to go to sleep, I didn't care where she did it. She went back in the bed, back on the floor, crawled around the floor all while I tried to ignore her hoping she would tire herself out. She finally decided to lay down and fall asleep just before midnight.
I'm tired just thinking about all that. What time do your kids go to sleep? How do you get them into bed easily without a fuss?
