…she will move mountains.
Someone said that.. and that’s all fine and dandy. But how the heck did they get “her” to sleep in the first place?!? Anyone know?
Here is what I know. My kids hate bed time. It usually takes about 3 hours of fighting constantly to get them to sleep, and then a few hours after I go to bed, I wake up with one child on either side of me. Sigh.
We have tried it all. Bed time routine, reading to them, massage, calming tea, lullabies, warm milk, bribes, threats (I’m not proud of that one). Nothing seems to get them into their own beds.
Im sure we will get this sleep thing to happen at some point. For now, Im happy that we school at home, so that we can sleep in a bit in the mornings, and get on with class time a little later in the day. I can’t imagine waking up early after not sleeping to get the kids to school on time, or that my kids would function well at school all day after not sleeping through the night….
If you have gentle parenting suggestions on how to get my children to sleep at night, I welcome them. 🙂
In the meantime here are some cute photos of my kids when they are sleeping 🙂
Here they are the morning after Bunny was born. Automatically comfortable with being sisters.
I mean look how cute they are, why would they not sleep more often!
