So it's 9:15pm where I am (NJ) and both of my boys are still awake. Something happened to my 2 year old once he turned 2. He decided he's not going to go to bed.
Bed time was never a problem for baby boy. He was always good at going to bed. He's been a pretty good sleeper since we brought him home from the hospital. Bed time has typically been 8-8:30pm. But now, here we are at 9:15pm and I can still hear him.
Hubs doesn't help much. Once baby boy goes to sleep, that's hubs' time to play with the 5 year old. They usually play a board game or wii or something just the 2 of them can enjoy together. I have no problem with that. I love that they get that time alone. But baby boy wants to play with the big boys now. I think hubs needs to change things up a bit.
I suppose now is the time to institute some sort of bedtime ritual for both boys. I fear neither of them will go willingly though. The 5 year old will miss out on time alone with hubs. The 2 year old won't stand to be left out of anything. Any suggestions? Mommy needs to clock out for a few hours before the sun comes up.
