Ok so my son, to say it lightly, FRIGGIN HATES TO SLEEP.. He's only 3-1/2 but will stay up as long as he can and fight the sleep like no adult should be able to do at this age.
As part of our normal routine, we got our Pj's on, watched his 20 minute show, brushed his teeth and I read him 2 books.. then I snuck in there, OK, IF you go to bed like a great big boy, Mommy will bring you to Kung Fu Panda tomorrow with alix ( his cousin) - and it WORKED tonight.. seriously I didn't have to go in there one time.. WOOHOO!!!! Now let me tell you I HAVE tried bribing before, yes, I've stooped. Rewards, treats, stern voices, threatening, taking away toys.. this is an endless battle since birth with my angel but whoa.. tonight it worked.. all those late nights and no naps really MUST take its toll eventually.. what is the hardest thing for you and your child to battle?
