Stall Tactics

I'm guessing if you have a toddler you are aware of the 500 stall tactics they can use so they don't have to go to bed. Henry is getting a little more creative these days and we appreciate this because it adds a little more humor to it.

Last night he brought out some good ones.....

First up - "He comes down and tells me that his coloring book does not belong in his room but in his play room." Yes, he is correct, we don't have toys or those kinds of things in his room.  He promptly took the coloring book and placed it in his playroom and then went back upstairs.

Second up - "I have to tinkle." He switched it up because his normal go to is "I have to poop" and 9 times out of 10, he does. So, we told him to go sit on the potty. He comes out and says "The tinkle won't come out." I reply, "Probably because you really don't have to go." He of course starts laughing.

Third Up - He just walks downstairs and goes into his playroom. We have no idea what he was doing until the Fourth trip.

Fourth Trip - "Mommy. I don't need these cars in my room anymore, please take them from me and put them back in my playroom." I guess he took them upstairs with him on trip number 3.

It is now about 9:45pm and I have to use the no sticker card to get him to stay in the bed. Yes, it worked because he loves to add stickers to his sticker chart and he knows that he is three stickers away from a Target trip.

No, my child is not normally up this late but he napped at school from 1:40 to 2:30 and this is what happens when he naps......HE WON'T SLEEP! On no nap days he is in bed and asleep just after 8pm. We actually have to tell school not to have him nap and yes they look at us crazy but what can you do.

I'm looking forward to seeing what else he will come up with in the upcoming weeks. The Nardiello Family: Stall Tactics
