I was told to try an even earlier bedtime.
6:00 p.m. Dinner
7:00 p.m. Head upstairs for baths
7:30 p.m. In bed
7:40 p.m. I check on Taylor and she tells be that she wants more time to read to Maxine.
7:50 p.m. Taylor comes downstairs and hands me a pair of feather earrings.
Taylor: Mom, I got these for you! They are so soft!
Me: Taylor, did you go in my room?
T: *rolls eyes* Well, they weren't in MY room and they weren't in SISSY'S room... I got them from your room. Sissy helped me.
Then, she went back up to bed by herself.
8:05 p.m. We hear talking but assume it is the girls "silently" reading to their "friends."
8:10 p.m. Jaden calls us upstairs because Taylor won't stay out of her room.
8:15 p.m. Taylor has to go potty for the 150,346,257th time.
8:25 p.m. Taylor is refusing to get into bed.
8:30 p.m. Taylor gives in and lays down with her eyes closed as long as I hold her hand. I hold it for about 2 seconds and then hand the job off to Maxine.
8:40 p.m. Getting frustrated with my child for not wanting to go to bed.
8:50 p.m. She's snoring.
10:00 p.m. I go to bed.
5:15 a.m. My alarm goes off. I jump up and look to the floor. Taylor is not there! I go to her room and she is still fast asleep!
Taylor is spending the night with Gramma J tonight. Yeah, she's taking one for the team.
