Day Two of the Great Bedtime Shakedown

Our boys have been staying up up up in recent months. Bedtime has become chaotic and unfun - at least for the grownups in this house.

So I'm on a crusade to get everyone to sleep earlier, in secure, warm and loving circumstances.

Night One: It took the baby 45 minutes to get to sleep next to me in the darker than usual room with the door shut. It took the older boy 1 hr and 45!!! I was extremely patient and committed!

Night Two: Baby was a nightmare. (But he had had a day nap). But this time the older boy only took 50 minutes to get to sleep. His eyes closed about 8.45 - approximately two hours earlier than he has been dozing off in recent months.

We'll see what happens tomorrow!
