Today I had the fabulous opportunity to write a guest post for Petit Elefant, an awesome online magazine-style parenting blog, and because it took what little time and energy I had left last night to write it, I had little left for a post on freshly baked, a not-quite-as-cool-as-Petit-Elefant blog.
So instead of a super inspiring, original post I’m going to simply refer you to the one I wrote for Petit Elefant: “Bedtime, the seven-letter word“…and I’m going to throw in a little guilt trip as well. Here it is: if you don’t comment I will think you didn’t read it and I will cry and cry and cry myself to sleep tonight. Feeling the need to comment? I hope so!
I think the only time I ever truly enjoy bedtime is when my kids are in the stage my youngest is in right now, the binky-blanket-book-bed stage. Just now I had to haul my three-year-old back to bed for the fourth time tonight. Oh, and here I am one sentence later and he’s back again…can you see my jaw tensing as I get up yet one more time to lead him back to bed in silence? And yes, I learned that trick from Super Nanny.
If that sounds familiar you’ll want to read the post in its entirety. Bedtime is just three hours away…wish me luck! –Emily
