  1. Oh, toddlers are funny. Mine insisted (her father reported) on having a tidy stack of books on her pillow, with her bedtime cup carefully balanced on top of it.

  4. Oh, they are funny little creatures when it comes to bedtimes, aren’t they?!
    The bunny insisted on sleeping on the floor because her doll needed her beside her yesterday! They are so funny.
    My fingers are crossed for you in that Bella is better in going to bed tonight.

  6. Why did you keep giving her the small one?

    I’m afraid this will be the scene at my house in a few months.

  7. As if I wasn’t dreading the big girl bed transition already (which is ordered and arriving in the near joyous future). Ya. Joy.

  8. ugh. sucks so bad. with our second this went on for weeks. I actually had to start sitting outside his room for an hour or 2 every night for 3 weeks. He would open the door, peek out at me, laugh and climb back in bed. It was better than carrying him back upstairs 30 times. But then it was over, he finally started just going to sleep.
    It will get better, you are doing the right thing and it will eventually work. :)

  9. She’s got you wrapped Ali.:).. funny, I always said if I had a second child I wouldn’t let this happen .. but I think easier said than done! Bless her sweet little soul…

    hmm… maybe she is getting her small/big mixed up and she is telling you she doesn’t like her big bed, she wants to go back to her crib?

  12. This is exactly what is happening at my house lately with Rylie. I’d give anything for the days when she just sat on the edge of her bed (mind you, with a step stool right there to climb down) and call for me in the morning. No escaping 50 times at bedtime. Hoping it ends for the both of us soon! ;)
