Almost 9PM. My 4 year old is STILL UP. If you know me, you know I am a NO-B/S mom when it comes to bedtime yet she's still up. Why is she still up? She's up because she's WIRED and physically CANNOT settle down.
She's not particularly a good eater but today she ate VERY WELL. I think I like it better when she DOESN'T eat a good dinner because she's TIRED at BEDTIME and not WIRED. It's almost 9PM and she's up, playing busily with her toys. She's quiet, so it's not a bother but what WILL be a bother is when 6AM rolls around and she is up regardless of the time she goes to BED. I tried to put her in bed a couple times and she's very sweet about it and tells me, "Mommy I just can't stay still"
We had an early dinner, around 5PM. WHEN will this energy wear off? I'm exhausted just watching her play!! Her sister went to bed at 7 without a peep. She's the queen of the bedtime routine. She goes down with no fuss at all. I say, "bedtime girls!" and she's the 1st one up the stairs to the bathroom to wash her hands and face and brush her teeth. She runs to her room, climbs in her bed and is down. 99.8%of the time.
It looks like I'll have relatively no free time to myself this evening. I hate that because then I don't get much done and feel that my time wasn't used wisely.
I am going to attempt to put her to bed again now that it's 9PM and see what happens. Wish me luck!!!
