I'm sure this has been done to death already but please tell me how I can get my 2.8 DD to go to bed!
she had her dinner, she had a play. She had wind down time, she's had milk and a story. We had a dummy, we held hands. She has had me in to her three times (we're in a one-bedroom flat), and eventually I gave up and got her up so I could sit and eat my dinner. She now is running around and wanting to play. Patently tired but will not give in.
She has a short nap some days, not all. As and if she needs. However, thinking about this in a bit more detail I wonder if the sleeplessness/unsettledness is because she's picking up on my stress.
Sorry - realise this is now drip-feeding.
Been dealing with my late parents house (Dad died last year), getting it emptied of all possessions (30+ years worth of stuff) and furniture, etc. Had no end of stupid bother from solicitors. In the last few weeks I have had to frequently change plans, and haven't been able to give her as much attention as I usually would, because I've had to make constant phone calls etc.
However, this week sees the end of all that, so maybe a calmer me might help.
