Lil' E has become quite the procrastinator at bedtime. We have always had a structured bedtime routine, dinner, bath, stories, songs, and then lights out. I lay with her and we snuggle for a few more minutes, kiss her good night, and off to sleep. The whole routine lasts about an hour and I enjoy every minute. Recently, bedtime has not been that easy and if I stay with her, she's up until 10 o'clock. My only choice is to leave her crying, which breaks my heart, but only lasts a few minutes before she is snoring away.
Check out my guest post on our bedtime battles at my friend Farrah's blog The Three Under.
