But Dh has to get up at 5 am!! I am lost I don't know where to start.
Tonight, we were all in bed by 10 pm...but it is now 12:30 and my 2 YO is still awake! After telling her ,time to go to sleep, close your eyes, and doing everything under the sun,she continued to sing and clap & "tickle" her sister, who joined in the fun by laughing,kicking and squealing.....all the while DH is getting impatient ( and pissed) and I am just wishing they would go to sleep so I don't have to listen to him moan and groan!: SO after 45 min the 3 of us,me and 2 dd's got out of bed and played. Now baby is asleep and I am on the computer and DD is watching caillou on PBS.
So I need advice, we need a sleep schedule...tho I have not cared until now...
HELP... where do I start??!
Oh and thanks... You ladies are WONDEFUL ( see I am tired)

I sometimes have the same problem with my 2/yo twins.Dh now sleeps in a different bedroom so he can sleep when he has to work.It could be a developemnntal stage,or with my girls just before they are coming down with something they will not want to sleep,or wake at night for hours!But,I am betting its something she needs to deal with in her own way.That doesnt mean you cant lay down some ground rules.i.e_no talking afterlights out/playing.You need to lay down and cant play ect.You know your child best and know what rules she is ready for.But most of all be consistant.
Heres hoping tomorrow will go better
