Discuss or don't, I'm just sayin.
someday....he or she will be just like you....that's the reward for the early punishment.
If the situation was right, I'd have a dozen more.
One day you'll say the same thing.
Those days are short-lived indeed. How I miss them.
I've got three . . . I just got up at 9am, hubs left for work at 7:30am.
Time, Paulie, time is the answer to the kid/sleep thing. Somewhere around puberty they figure out that sleeping in is a good thing . . . of course then they don't ever want to go to bed.
be consistant in the bedtime...i put my son to bed no later than 8 pm..after dinner...giving my hubby and i time to be together....he finally objected when he was 11...they turn on you like snakes then...wait more like pit bulls
I have 2 kids, and I sleep very well.
omg dr h...my grandmother would give us that lol...kinda nice
Yup. We were always, always consistent with bedtime and keeping them sleeping in their own beds. It was something we could nearly always count on . . . once the routine was established.
I have a friend who was lax about bedtime when the kids were babies and when they did go to bed she would go in and lay down with them until they fell asleep. Years later, when they were in grade and middle school, she was still doing this. They'd be up until 11 or midnight, having to get up and go to school the next day (I'm talking 6 and 7 year olds, that age). And it all fell on her. No way, Jose.
Establish a routine early . . . . babies and kids thrive on routine.
