Hubby and I are working in earnest again to get Peanut to sleep in his bed. We started Sunday night and so far he's gone to sleep fairly easily in his bed. This involves multiple bedtime stories, piling his favorite stuffed animals and blankets into bed, and scratching his backsidestummyearsheadshouldersarmsandlegs. He has stayed in bed until somewhere between 1 and 3 am each night - not too bad!
The key was to tell him his animals want to sleep in his bed. Who knew?
It's love bug season in steamy FL. Peanut recognizes them on sight, as does any Florida resident - the freakin' things are everywhere. He noticed a, ahem, pair on the ground the other day.
"Mommy, are those love bugs?"
"They stuck together because they love each other."
"Dat's why they love bugs."
