I surrender! It’s difficult to get my daughter to sleep at night. Since now she goes to kindergarten, she has to wake up early. My wife and I have to ask her to go to bed early so that we don’t have trouble waking her up next morning.
But before she sleeps, she will find a lot of things to say (Yes I know, you say it’s good to reconnect), to do, and other irritating requests like: "Mommy, my leg is itchy. Put some cream on it." or "I want some water, daddy." or "It’s very warm here."
Why irritating? Because by the time she says that we’re almost half asleep.
I just don’t know where she finds her endless energy to be so alert before bedtime. And sometimes, I know that she’s tired but she just refused to sleep. We have tried to "warn" her 30 minutes before bedtime to get her ready but it seems it doesn’t work.
Phew! Let’s see what my daughter has in store for us tonight. Hmmm, maybe it is not that bad tonight because tomorrow is Saturday. We can all sleep longer. Thank god.
