You may remember me saying that Little Sister ONLY wants Tim to put her to bed lately. Once in a while she’ll “allow” me to read her a bedtime story and put her to bed, but that rarely ends well.
Tonight was one of those nights.
She wouldn’t settle down, wanted to stand up while I read to her, etc. I finally got her to bed but she kept talking. (The kids’ bedrooms are about 10 feet from the living room, unfortunately.) Then Book Boy was sent to bed. LS started yelling and crying for Daddy. Then she wanted Book Boy to sleep in the crib with her. Tim put LS in bed with BB. That lasted for about 1.5 minutes before she was out in the living room. We tried to let her fall asleep on the couch. 1.5 minutes again. Put her back in her crib. Cry cry cry. Then BB comes out of HIS room crying because LS’s crying is disturbing him so much. “It’s hard to even close my eyes when she’s crying so much!”
So I laid down with him for a little while as Tim tended to LS.
Finally, they were both asleep.
About 1.5 hours after we put LS to bed originally.
