I first attempted this mission when I was 6 months pregnant with Itala. Antonella was getting bigger and so was I. There was definitely no room for a princess ninja in our bed. The operation went south when I decided I was way too tired to try to make a 3 year old sleep alone in her room for the first time. Plus, she smelled so good and I want to keep her in my bed forever. FOCUS, FOCUS!!
My Husband We decided it was time again to try to get them to sleep in their own beds since Itala inherited her sister’s ninja skills, and now I am the proud owner of a black and blue mark right on my right thigh. They got these super cute blankets that Santa thoughtfully chose for them at Target. Monster High for Antonella and Sofia the First for Itala. Soft, cozy blankets in the middle of the Polar Vortex will sure help change their minds about their practically untouched beds.
Itala didn’t nap today; she’ll be out by 8. Antonella is recovering from a cold, her body is tired; she’ll be out by 8:15. Let’s do this, we’re totally ready.
Get in, get comfy, get sleepy…success.
It’s now 9:40 and they’re both tucked in…talking their heads off…back in my bed.
Day 1: FAIL….but oh they smell so good.
“Mami, I want to sleep all the nights with you”
