Yep. I'm behind. Why?
Well, super-exhausted-needs-to-sleep-like-Rip-Van-Winkle child refused to go to bed. Not even the threat of Santa could talk him into going to sleep Friday night. Long past his bedtime when Daddy got home he was still awake, still screaming.
These are the Billy tricks I no longer fall for:
1.) I'm hungry. No you're not. You ate dinner. Go to bed.
2.) I need a binky. No, you have 2 already. You only have one mouth. Go to bed.
3.) I need to pee-pee on the potty. Hmm... do I bite? He's wearing a diaper. Nope. No potty. Go to bed.
4.) Where's my ...? Your ... is in your hand. Now, go to sleep.
5.) Mommy, I miss you! I miss you too. Now, go miss me i bed, please.
6.) I need a hug. You've already had 7 hugs. You can have another hug in the morning. Go to bed.
7.) Mommy, I already sleep and I wake up! That's great. Go back to sleep until the sun gets up. THEN you can get up too.
8.) Chucking something like a binky, blanket or favorite luvey over the baby gate and then screaming for it once it's out of reach.
After a long battle and taking 4 hours to watch a 2 hours movie, he finally went to sleep.
