Ok I'm a big convincer, shmoozer, bullshiter, call it what you want, ok maybe not bullshiter. I would tell my girl, how lucky she was that she had her own bedroom @ 5 yrs old cause I didn't. Then I went on to say, " you know you make the funniest noises and the cutest faces when your are sleeping in your room, I can't wait to see what face you make tonight. Well as the day progressed and evening came she'd whine and whimper. So I'd start to get excited and get out my note pad and pen to jot down what she did when I came into check on her. Then I'd tell her " thank you for being such a big girl, I love you, your so lucky" It was funny, but it worked. and with my son too.
