It's a vicious cycle...
Lately, Little Red REFUSES to go to bed before 10 pm, therefore he is a cranky crab come morning time. I have tried everything from sweetness & bribes to my serious face, complete with time outs, CIO and, yes a few leg swats-don't you judge me. This kid is way too stubborn for his own good. Nothing works. He fights me until Mr. Sass (who has been working very looooooong hours) gets home and we turn every light in the house off and all lay down together. Even the dogs must be in their beds. I have to spend 20 minutes pretending to sleep while fighting with all my might to stay awake so that I can finish dishes, laundry and various other equally exciting tasks.
Then, when it's time to wake up he REFUSES to get up and the entire morning is a nightmare. He fights getting dressed, brushing his teeth and just wants me to hold him. I spend the entire morning rushing him while trying to get myself ready. This is not fun a' tall and I know he needs more sleep, but I can't figure out for the life of me how to get him to bed earlier. Am I so entertaining that he wants to stay up with me and not miss anything? Doubtful. I mean folding towels and unloading the dishwasher are super glam, but seriously he isn't gonna miss anything.
How do all of you 7pm bed timers do it? Even 8pm would be loverly. Do I need Super Nanny or an intervention or what?
