So now I put a Baby Einstein video on repeat play in the hopes he'll stay in bed all night...hasn't worked yet...grrrr
Oh no! I told DS1 tonight "what if; you go to bed without me or daddy, and if you can get to sleep on your own, we will give you a dollar in the morning so that you can buy something you want?" "Really?! A dollar?!....but... I don't like to go to sleep alone, I like one of you with me..." :sigh:
Right now he goes to sleep in our room, and then when ds2 I finally asleep we move him to their room. Otherwise it's crazy! Today ds2 had a much needed nap, and didn't fall asleep until 11, even though we started trying to get him into bed @ 9:30. :/
