Keira had us all fooled with her good bedtime behavior. She was a perfect angle for the first 2 nights in her big girl bed.. and then she realized she has all his power and freedom at her fingertips why not use it a bit?
So now that she has figured out how to get in and out of bed- out is the only place she wants to be. She climbs out of bed as soon as we finish all the story reading. We close the door and the baby gate because we know that very soon she will figure out how to open the door. She then proceeds to stand by the door and whine, cry and talk for a long time. The past nights its been between an hour and an hour and a half.. standing by the door whining and talking and occasionally crying. She is always worse when I put her to bed so 90% of the time its Mike's job. Yesterday she refused to take a nap and stood up by the door doing the usual for an hour and 10 min until I gave up and brought her downstairs... she skipped a nap for like the second time in her life!
Oh well. Such is life with a toddler.
