    We’re not at this stage yet, bedtime is still pretty simple….but I know this little girl of mine is gonna give me quite the time of it.

    Adorable! But perhaps there should be more time negotiation? :-O And maybe a little piece for snuggling. 😉 I agree with Shanna… some of these seem to be forever issues… even with teenagers. Lol!

    This is hilarious! I’m still co-sleeping with my almost three year old, but that doesn’t stop her from trying to do anything BUT laying down and falling asleep. The other night she said she had to get up and brush her teeth again because a drink of water made them dirty. Toddlers are too funny.

    My two year old has a bigger bed so to make it easier either my husband or myself will lay with him until he falls asleep. I know its probably not the best way but it works for us

    We have a 20 month old who LOVES his bedtime and gets excited. We co-sleep but he starts his nights on his own bed that’s on the floor in our room. He has snuggly blankets and is all cozy when he goes to sleep. We are enjoying this b/c when we have more children we know it will not be the same 🙂

    This made me laugh. My daughter just turned 1, so we haven’t reached this stage yet. Right now she runs around the living room until she is tired and then she comes and puts her head on my lap and whines until I put her to bed.

    My grandson is the great sleep resister. He is the master of doing without sleep and has never taken more than one nap a day since 2 months of age! He is now 2 1/2 and needless to say, everyone is exhausted….and yet, we wouldn’t trade any of it for the world.
