ok, so my kids have a very late bedtime these days because they don't want to be in bed without us and take forever to fall asleep to the point where they won't start crying when we get up to leave. DS is almost 2 and DD is almost 4. My DH and/or I will take them up to read books and sing and lay in bed. It takes over an hour for my DD to fall asleep and by then my DH falls asleep so I barely see him and never without kids. If one of us is still downstairs working on something my almost 2 year old starts saying our name and signing "where" then comes down to find us and play.
It's really starting to wear on me. How do the co-sleeping families out there get their kids to fall asleep in their co-sleeping bed at an earlier bedtime than they have?
