Anyone else feel guilty when they put their LO to sleep?

My daughter just gives me these huge puppy dog eyes and sticks out her bottom lip when she has to go to bed. Only 6.5 months old and trying to manipulate me already! I feel so bad that I have to put her to bed, but I know she's tired and she goes to bed at the same time every night.

  • Lol no. When he goes to bed it's me time! I do a few loads of laundry. Than watch a movie or get on-line.

  • Heck no! The only time I get to eat is after she goes to sleep. So I'm a little anxious to get her to bed on

  • Nope. I want to enjoy being around my kids, and it's pretty hard to do that if they're whiny and spastic from being up past their bedtime.

  • I don't put mine to sleep. They lay around the house and fall asleep on their own and then I put them in bed (my son of course goes in my bed where he's been since day 1). Mine are older though...
