The last few nights we have been struggling with getting the boys to sleep. Colby has been going down around 6:30pm (exhausted!), but has woken up right around the time we put Blake down 7:15pm. This makes life challenging as neither will fall asleep until the other is asleep... yeah hello catch 22!
We've tried ignoring them, we've tried letting them up and play, we've tried going in and out of their rooms, you name it... we've tried it. Last night Blake was tired and would lay down in his bed, and then Colby would begin fussing again and up Blake was in the hallway again. Blake actually fell asleep for about 20 minutes and Colby started fussing. I went to try to calm Colby down and thought I had... yeah no! Then guess what... Blake was up again too. Finally, Richard went in and got Colby to settle down (again) and I got Blake to go back to sleep again!
This was now 8:45pm... yes this was 1.5 hours after we put Blake down to begin with.
Ok who wants to let my sons in on the understanding that sleep is a good thing??
