Come on mate time for bed. By now I have said it at least 5 times – it’s as if there is an automatic filter on his ears that cancels those words. I’m sure there is a scientific term.
Like you, early in the piece we followed the eat, bath, sleep routine but now have;
- just want to watch this
- I have to go to the toilet
- There’s a noise in my room
- Why can you stay up
- I need water
- My leg, hand, head, back…… hurts
- I’m still hungry
And the list goes on!!
My latest “trick” is to piggy back him to bed and at least that get him there. I probably need to read to him more while in bed that seem to settle him a bit and I’m not sure too many toys in his room doesn’t help.
By about 8:30 his finally sleeping and when I tuck him in I always seem to find at least 10 small toys in there with him. I must admit seeing sleeping quietly and safe is probably the best site a father will see.
Ok now its Mummy and Daddy time!!
