Bedtime woes

I've given up trying to get Alexander to fall asleep in his own bed tonight, so now he's falling asleep in my bed and I'm sitting here typing (which is a much better arrangement than what we had going on). And perhaps sometime I'll move him to his own bed (and perhaps I won't). For some reason, though, he'll lie still in my bed (something he absolutely will not do in his own bed).

I remember falling asleep in my parents' bed when I was younger. My mom would turn on music for me and I'd lie in her bed until I fell asleep. I'm certain my parents moved me after I fell asleep and I can't remember why I had to fall asleep this way or how old I was (or how long it happened for). I know it was in the PoCo house.

Anyway, I guess if he'll fall asleep in my bed he can have it since it's 10:00 and he's been going strong all day long.

At our house "bedtime" lasts an average of two hours. And it's torture.

  1. Holy cow. We moved to Poco when Patrick was 1. So you were 6. I am, apparently, a very patient bedtime mother.

    1. I don't think I ALWAYS did that. But I just remember doing that for some length of time. And I didn't require you to be there. You always left me. So I wasn't ALL bad. :)

  2. But I didn't think it was bad! I loved my little kids. I miss them.

    1. Oh, I have memories of you thinking non-sleepers were bad! Hahahaha! Do you remember locking Josie out of your room and making her sleep with me instead? Hahaha! :) She was a tough one!
