do your kids tend to wild at night?

mine seem to get a second wind right around bedtime when I'm totally wiped out.

  • No, we do not do active things in the evenings. It is our quiet calm time. Very little chance to get wild.

  • Yes! I think they can sense the tiredness of mommy and it gives them triple the energy.

  • mine did when they were younger but I think they were just tired and fighting it. My LO is starting to do that.... he's 3 (his brothers are 10 12, and 13). As soon as they figured out I was standing my ground, they gave up the fight. Good luck!

  • Yes mine too. Reading is the best to calm them. But the main reason mine get wild is because of DH and getting them wound up - he always chooses bedtime to wrestle or play monster. They love it but realy he doesn't get the connection!
