Feb 10 I should mention first that we try not to make bedtime a big deal here. The quickest way in my opinion to create bedtime battles is to make it a control issue, so we use routine and guidance in order to help the kids get the rest they need. That said, their bodies are their own, and they are ultimately in charge of themselves.

Anyway, E3 is working on giving up her nap. Not that she doesn’t need it, as she still gets a bit cranky in the evenings if she doesn’t nap. But if she naps, she has a really hard time falling asleep at night. This night, she had been in bed at least 45 minutes without coming back out or making any noise, so I thought she had gone to sleep okay. At about 11:00, I heard someone in the bathroom, so I went to investigate. I was informed, “My hair is too messy to go to sleep!”
