I'm linking up with Shannon from "Life After I Dew" today for her So What! Wednesday series. This week it's going to be a little different because I need some Mama advice so I'm incorporating my original blog into SWW style... If you have advice, please, please share it!
So What ~ if bedtime with Olivia lately has reduced us both to tears for the past several nights.
So What ~ if my first mistake was never letting her fall asleep on her own as an infant.
So What ~ if my second mistake is never letting her cry...not talking cry it out, I just mean cry a little.
So What ~ if this is coming back to bite my in the behind.
So What ~ if I lay in bed with her (she's in a full size bed) to get her to fall asleep.
So What ~ if every damn time I tried to get up after she was asleep last night she woke up.
So What ~ if it took me 3 hours to get her to bed last night on her own.
So What ~ if I was crying out of sheer frustration during bedtime for the last 2 nights.
So What ~ if I lost my temper because she just wouldn't!go!to!sleep!
So What ~ if I really, really need some advice on how to get my now 2 year old go to sleep on her own.
....so, if you can offer me advice, please do. I'm willing to try (almost) anything. Bedtime has become dreadful and it shouldn't be this way. I need to be able to put my daughter in her bed and have her fall asleep without screaming, crying, snotting etc. for hours.
