sometimes sleeps all night and sometimes here lately wants to be up for 1-2 hours in the middle of the night. We are having a hard time with Noah right now. What do you do to make sure you and them get more sleep. I can't cosleep because I'd never sleep with him in the bed with us. I wake up when my dh key goes in the lock of our door so I'd wake up with every breath he takes, yk. I'm trying to break the cycle of spanking in my family. Some days I'm successful some days I'm not. Please don't flame me I'm trying to do the best I can with the way I was parented. My wonderful dear mother the other day told me you're not worth .60/minute to talk to...saying this to me when she's out of town and i'm caring for her animals. She's so negative I almost don't want my kids around her and she firmly believes in spanking. She made a comment the other day about that Noah's hardly ever spanked. I kind of thought to myself yay I must be doing something right if she's never seen him spanked. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"> I admit most of the time if he is spanked it's out of anger and I should be the one to be spanked. He's a very strong willed child and he frustrates me alot. I guess I'm venting...thanks for listening. I'm going to check out the gd boards alot more. I feel like a failure going there sometimes.
