This past week I took time to get work done over the weekend so that I could devote 100% of my mind to getting the boys to stay in their beds. I needed my Mama rights back, I needed the boys to realize that while I love them dearly I mean business when I say it's bedtime. There is to be no joking around, there is to be no hitting Mama and there is to be nothing more than two boys staying in their own bed falling asleep.
Once I was able to set aside a week of my time to deal with the boys and have no other thought about having to work I was better able to have a clear mind and be more efficient as a parent. It is amazing what a clear head can help you accomplish in parenting!
My sons still have moments where they test my weakness, but I stick to my guns and I have won this battle and am proud to say my sons, for the most part, are actually going to bed when they are suppose to! Next step: working on getting the boys to stay asleep all night long!
