Aloha Friday: Bedtime Procrastination
For the past few nights, bedtime has been a stressful time. NHL is not to blame. He gets into his top bunk and quickly goes to sleep. JSL, on the other hand, has turned into the Kid Of A Million Excuses Why He Can’t Sleep. The air conditioning is on so he’s too cold. When I turn it off, he becomes too hot. Then, he needs to use the bathroom (something he did before getting in bed, mind you). Then, he needs a drink (again, something he did before going to sleep). Then, his legs are bothering him or his toes itch or he’s not comfortable for some reason. This will go on for over an hour until JSL is completely overtired and mom and dad are frazzled.
My Aloha Friday question for today is: Do your kids ever give bedtime excuses? If so, how do you handle them?
Thanks to Kailani at An Island Life for starting this fun for Friday. Please be sure to head over to her blog to say hello and sign the linky there if you are participating.
