I have no idea what is wrong with my 2 younger children. Well, 3 younger child really but thankfully I don't have to rock Tony to sleep.
For almost 2 weeks now Mr. Drew has been climbing out of his bed and throwing a fit for both his nap and night bed time. He ends up sleeping in front of the door, making it impossible to go in and check on them before I go to bed at night. He really has been fighting his afternoon nap. Either he doesn't take one, or he eventually falls asleep for a short while on the floor of his room after screaming for while, or I have to rock him to sleep. The rocking part is difficult because Brodie has given up his nap now for the most part and he does relatively well staying in my bed being quiet, but he still gets up every now and then and messes around.
Last night Drew woke up at 1:30 crying for me. Of course I had to rock him back to sleep and when I went to put him back in bed, he woke up screaming again. Thus, waking up Brodie. I put Brodie in bed with Will and went back out to rock Drew some more. Finally I just had to put Drew to bed and of course being the sensitive sleeper he woke up crying. This time I just left him and he ended up falling asleep on the floor. In the meantime I go back to my room where Brodie is completely awake laying in bed with my out of it husband. Brodie decides he wants to sleep in the chair in the living room. I was fine with this cause I figured he would wake Drew if he went in the room.
So, I got him all settled in the recliner only to have him cry for his bear. Drats. The bear is in the bedroom with Drew. So, I tiptoe in there and if the lights were on my face would be blue from holding my breath so I don't wake him up. Get the bear, Brodie is settled, I make my bed on the couch and just when I fall asleep...Brodie is in my face saying he is hungry, then thirsty, then he wants to watch a movie. I decline all the above and he settles for snuggling with my on the couch. Only he tosses and turns for the next hour. Finally at 3:45am I give in and put in Toy Story. He watches most of it and then gets up to play cars. He never did go back to bed.
Drew woke at 5:30am and by 7am I was tired of the arguing so Brodie went to bed and slept till 10am. Now, thankfully with out much of a fight Drew is in bed and Brodie is playing tiny cars. At least for now it is quiet. I hope the no sleep phase doesn't last long cause I may not survive.
