Do we have to go to bed?

Child sent to bed

A small boy is sent to bed by his father...
[Five minutes later]
"I'm thirsty. Can you bring me a drink of water?"
"No. You had your chance. Lights out."
[Five minutes later]
"I'm THIRSTY...Can I have a drink of water??"
"I told you NO! If you ask again I'll have to spank you!!"
[Five minutes later]
"When you come in to spank me, can you bring me a drink of water?"
Aha! Jokes

The word bedtime in our house is synonymous with anything but sleep!! We can start the bedtime process at 7, 8, 9 and we still have the same results kids awake until 10:00p.m.
  • Self-proclaimed world’s worst “putter to bed” on the planet. No, Not Me !!
  • I certainly never sit beside my children’s bed at bedtime after all other attempts at sleep have failed. No, Not Me!!
  • I absolutely do not ever give-up or give in and let the little people come back down stairs. Not Me!!
  • I Never believe their claim to being de-hydrated, starved, or scared. No, Not Me!!
I have received tried and read all kinds of advice on the whole sleep time issue and have decided “Bedtime” is my Nemesis!!

Join me at MckMama’s today for Not Me Monday!!
