My time is up with Henry in his crib. The past few nights he has been refusing to go to sleep. We were trying to get him so tired that he would not realize it was bedtime and he would just pass out.
Last night we went out to dinner and Gayle and Grandpa were watching him. They did our regular routine but he wanted nothing to do with reading his books. Gayle tried but he just kept running to the door. She put him in his crib and walked out. Well then the screaming started. They let him cry for a few minutes but then walked back in to him throwing his leg over the top of the crib rail and almost landing on the rocking chair. Gayle caught him just in time. Then Gayle said he was jumping up and down so much that he was able to get his waist over the top too!
We finally arrived home and found him sitting on the couch with Grandpa and Gayle. We didn't know what else to do, so we took the mattress out of the crib and laid it on the ground. He sleeps on a mat at school so we thought maybe this would work. Well, 45 minutes later he finally fell asleep. I just kind of laid there until I knew he was out. He didn't move the rest of the night, of couse I slept with one eye open just in case I heard him moving.
This is all fine but we are traveling a lot in the next few weeks and not only that we are moving in two weeks! I was hoping to work on this in the new house, I should have known that Henry would have a different plan.
Any tips would be great!
