When is bed time at your house?

What time does your LO go to bed? How old are they? My son is 3 and goes to bed late. Everything I see on the internet seems to say he should be going to bed early but he isn't tired.

Two year old scared of his room (dead ghost cat)

So I have a two year old (3 in October) that suddenly hates his bed room. He has always liked sleeping next to someone since he was born but he will normally sleeps in his own room 5 or 6 times a weeks. However the last week he comes and sleeps with me after just being in his room for a few hours. I figured it because he's getting new teeth. Well I told him he had to sleep in his room becau... More

C-section pain 3 years later

Lately my scar from my C-section has been hurting (like a pinching feeling) is this normal? My son will be 3 in October so it was a while ago. I noticed it is fading away. My husband Google it and said it was probably nerve damage healing.

Reward charts: Love 'em or hate 'em:?

How do you feel about reward charts? What do you use them for? Are they working? So my son is two and we just started using them. He seems to love them. He gets so happy when he gets a sticker. He hasn't even gotten to the reward part. So we have a help mama/daddy chart. Which is when he helps with chores. I mean actually help, if I do laundry he puts the clothes in the basket, takes the...

We are failing bedtime!

We've never had are son (now 2) get himself to sleep. We have always rock him to sleep. Recently we have been putting him in bed and singing until he is asleep. The only problem is that we have to stay in the room until he is asleep. Also he figets ( toss and turns) a lot for like an hour. I'm completely lost how to fix this. We read a couple books before he lays down but the about it. Any ideas?

Potty training

My son is two and keeps grabbing himself like he has to or had peed. He ask to sit on the potty but he just wants to put a wad of toilet paper in the toilet. I don't want to tell him he can't sit on the potty but he is sitting for the wrong reason. so do I let him sit anyhow?

Getting hit in gymnastics

I just put my 2 year old son in gymnastics two weeks ago. They have toys they can play with before/after their class. An other boy was playing with a truck and my son walked up next to him and the boy slapped him in the face. His mother said sorry, he has trouble sharing. Okay fine, it happens but this week my son was playing with a train and the little boy walked up to him and hit him in the f... More

Nap time messing with bedtime.

My two yr old has recently started taking his naps at 1pm instead of 11:30am (he wakes up between 6 and 7). With a 1p nap it has him sleeping until 3-4p and bed time is at 8:30. My husband tries getting as much energy out between then but he is still not tired. Bed time can't be moved back because I'm at work and my husband works early. Any suggestions on getting in bed on time.

Christmas present

I told my husband I wanted storage totes and a day to clean the house for Christmas. He just looked at me like it was a trick. We have a 2 yr old and I just want a clean house!!!! Instead of piles. Am I the only one?

terrible twos

Five meltdown, 2 time outs, and everything is no no no all before noon. Terrible twos are at my house. Thank goodness for naps!

Poll about co-sleeping

What would you rather have... A. Your LO wake up in the middle of the night and come sleep in your bed. But they sleep until 8am B. Sleeps in their own bed through out night but wake up 6am.

Birthday party crazy!

I'm a little crazy about planning my son birthday party. Last year was his 1st birthday and I started planning in mid August and his party was mid October. This year I'm already starting to think of a theme. Anyone else start planning way toooo early? I like making most of the decorations myself and not have to rush.

My son thinks he is the sun

My 20month old hasn't be sleeping good at all. He will fight going to sleep until 10p and then he is back up around 5:30/6am. He naps around 11a-1pm. I dont understand why he is doing this. He is getting teeth but we give him medicine before bed. Any ideas or suggestions?

Does anyone else get the "do you like being a mom" question? Its normally people I haven't seen since I had a kid but it's just weird. I just want to be like no its horrible you want him? Just to see there reaction.
