- bedtime battles -
Isn't funny how some kids fight sleep so much...they hate napping, they have no interest in going to bed. They battle it every.single.night. (Hmmm, sounds like a certain toddler that I know!) But as you get older...all you want to do is get a good night's sleep. I would LOVE to take a nap each day...and if only I didn't have a million things that I need (and want) to accomplish each night, I would gladly climb into bed at 7:30 p.m. and not budge until 7:30 a.m. I mean twelve hours of sleep each night? Heaven!!
Ellie is only 3, but I can already find myself turning into my parents...telling her the same things they told me when I was little...telling her that she is going to wish she could sleep and nap when she is older...that she will absolutely love her bed, and love the time of day that she can finally sink into it and catch some shut eye...of course, she looks at me like I'm crazy, and tells me in the best toddler voice "But momma, I don't like to sleep"...oh baby, if you only knew...one day you will be begging to be able to sleep half the day!
