Going Out on a Limb
Seeing as our 3-year-old fights sleep at all costs, including the cost of our sanity at times, we figured we’d just keep her in a crib until we absolutely couldn’t do so any longer. Well, the cat figured a way out of her cage, and soon the kitty across the room wanted to try to mimic that move as well. So we had to put a stop to it quickly. Hence, it was time for the toddler bed.
TIP! When you can’t convince your child that dragons aren’t real, try to explain that they cannot get into their room/ house. When that fails, as it inevitably will, proceed by empowering the young one in any way you can think to. Did you know that dragons are scared if you roar at them like a lion?? The 4 of us practiced our most vicious roars. Now, in the jungle, the quiet jungle, the lion sleeps tonight. (A-wheema whop, a-wheema-whop, a-wheema-whop!) [insert dancing clip here!]
