The little man does not like to go to bed. Like most kids his age, he fights sleep even if he is already so sleepy. It annoys me but then instead of forcing him to go to bed I let him decide. And it seems to be working. If I leave him alone he gets in the couch with his blankies saying good night to us. And without me telling him to go to bed he actually sleeps early. Talk about reverse psychology, lol. I then transfer him in his bed when he is sound asleep. There are nights that he stays up late but it is rare. I am loving this new arrangement. Although with the little man I am not sure how long this will last. He surprises me everyday with something new and although I am hoping this will be routine for him I am not holding my breath. Like always, I let him do what he wants (within reason) as long as he is happy.
