Little Jacky Rabbit wouldn't go to sleep

Another one bites the dust - he's pushing the envelope at bedtime again.

"Mom, I have to go poop."

"Mom, I need the bee thing (honey scooper)."


The sad thing is that the more he gets up, the more frustrated I become, the more tired his brother gets and the more Oreos I pop into my mouth when I get back into the kitchen to finish unloading the dishwasher.

Am I being too harsh when I don't allow him to have the light on?  I convince myself that I'm doing it for Spike's sake.  Is it my own selfishness that requires them to share a room?  (not wanting to put a bed in the office).

I almost can't remember how long he would cry if I just turned out the light and shut the door.  Maybe I'll let Daddy deal with that one tomorrow night...

Of course, he'll go right to bed when Dad's here.  I just know it.

  1. you too? don't feel bad about the sharing the room'd be happening even if he had his own room. :-S

    does this mean (*gasp!*) that our preschoolers need a later bedtime?

    perish the thought!!


Couldn't you just eat this one up? Did it not wet your appetite? What are you craving next? Let me know!
