They are 3.4 and 1.8. DD2 was BF until a few weeks ago and has been on a small cup of milk before bedtime as a replacement. She normally has it downstairs in front of telly before going up. DD1 doesn't need milk but, well, monkey see, monkey do
DD2 had a nap so will be difficult to get to bed and DD1 is being awkward but I amm pretty sure they are both tired, however, they have been in their room half an hour and they are chattering, chucking toys at each other etc and generally being whingey.
Do I take DD2 milk? bearing in mind DD1 will scream blue murder unless she gets one too? And then I will have to brush teeth.
If you have anyway up cups, why not put one in each of their beds with water. That way if they are thirsty no problem, but no teeth issues, and not wanting the same thing tomorrow. I wouldnt' bother now if I were you. but then my DCs would be looking for it every night for a week - I have found this out before when I do anything out of the ordinary.
All 3 of mine have any way up style cups in their beds every night (the bigger ones have more grown up ones). It has saved me many a trip upstairs - sigh!
Well they finally were asleep when I went up just after 9, but DD2 had done ehr normal trip of taking the water out of the cup and spitting out over herself, so her vest and sheet are all cold and clammy. It's 28 degrees in there, it must feel wonderful
