BECAUSE TODDLERS ARE INSANE, as soon as Daniel returned home I have not had a single frustrating moment with regard to Wesley’s bedtime.
Okay, okay, so I didn’t love discovering him climbing onto the back of my head at 4:45am this morning, and I don’t love that he’s been getting up roughly two hours earlier than usual, but HE STAYS IN HIS BED when you put him there which is a big win in my book.
Daniel got home Sunday night and we put Wesley in his bed, and I fully expected the whole up-down-up-down three-ring-circus, and he just… stayed there. And then fell asleep. I was nearly mad that he didn’t get up because he was making me look like a total nutjob for having such a hard time this weekend.
I read this Free Pass post on Ask Moxie recently (the best parenting website ever, BTW) and it was just what I needed. Nearly every annoying thing kids do is merely a phase, but when you’re in the thick of it it’s difficult to envision things getting better. They always do, but if you feel you’ve done a poor job managing the situation it’s nice to be reminded that you can do better tomorrow.
