I hate bedtime!

I hate having to put Dev to bed 52 gajillion (now, I know I spelled that right!) times. Every night it's the typical kid thing: "Mommy, I'm thirsty," "Mommy, I have to pee," "Mommy, I need you to come tell me good night again," Mommy, I need a toy," "Mommy, I'm thirsty again," etc, etc. You get the picture.

I swear by 5:30pm I am DONE! I have had about all I can handle. I count down the minutes until bedtime, and then to have bedtime last an hour and to have to do the whole routine 5 thousand times, it's infuriating! Drives me mad! I know, I know, he is 4 and every kid does this. But why does MINE have to? I hate it.

That being said, I just put Dev to bed and have already had to go in there twice. I wonder how many more times tonight before he is asleep?

haha...I know it's not that funny to you right now but one day you'll look back and wonder what happened to your baby. In fact I'm sure you already do. How sweet! You are such a good mom! Give yourself more credit! Love ya!

If they think you are in bed too they seem to accept bedtime better. You can also have quiet time starting about an hour before bedtime. No TV or loud music, maybe a bedtime snack, and a warm bath. And it is easier when it is dark outside. Hurray for shorter days! Good luck!
