Bedtime loopholes

Bedtime loopholes

Two characteristics of our boys and bedtime:

  1. They like to get up repeatedly after we put them to bed… to get a drink of water… to go to the bathroom (and invariably in OUR bedroom bathroom instead of just going across the hall to use the bathroom that is closest to them)… to get a bandaid… to get “itchy cream” for a bug bite (a.k.a Benedryl cream).
  2. They like to get up really, really early. As in, 5:30 am early, while Steve and I are trying to have our personal quiet time.

Occasionally Steve throws his weight and declares that the boys must stay in bed ALL NIGHT LONG until WE open the door for them in the morning.

But the boys still try to find loopholes.
