Why are bedtimes so hard? I know I'm not the only one that struggles with this but I also know that there are many out there that have no problems putting their children to sleep. I know a lot of it boils down to me and I messed up from the time "L" was 6 months old. When we would do breathing treatments we would just let him fall asleep on the couch and then give him his breathing tretment and move him to his crib. Well ever since he won't go to sleep on his own. He does now when he is so tired that he just falls out before I can get there.

But then there is "A". Too cute and that's the problem. She gets her way....I've got to stop. She did good untli she was about 6 mos old and could pull up. That's when I gave in to her. Well she'd fall asleep on the couch with me and then I'd put her in her bed until we moved into then she would just sleep on the couch. LAZY on my part not to move her. We finally got her moved to her room and she goes to sleep in her room but with me laying down with her. Sometimes it goes quick other times it takes forever. Naps have gotten pretty easy. I think we are going through the TERRIBLE 3's!!!!!!!!!!!!

Any suggestions send this way:)
