Yesterday Lexi woke up in a suprisingly good mood, the night before consisted of battles of all battles of bedtime, resulting in getting her tv taken out of her room.. which is normally our saving grace to get her to stay in her bedroom when its bedtime. It's an almost war to get her to go to bed if she has had a nap that day, this past week she's been napping again.
We've become incentive parents.. you sleep in your bed all night.. there will be some type of reward.
I don't love that it has come to that.. but at the same time its heavenly when she does as she's told.
In bed she'll ask what are we doing tomorrow? Then I continue and say well.. if you stay in your bed all night long we'll paint or go to Target or we'll have cinnamon rolls... the list has gone on.
She seems to need something to look forward to or wants to know the "plans" for the next day.
She might get this from me, because I like to be doing something.. sitting at home all day every day does not feel productive for me.. I like having things to do, projects to work on.
She just wants to be close,
so most of the time in the middle of the night when she creeps into our rooms..
we just let her stay.
