Renegotiating bedtime

Rafa is feeling much better tonight and he’s catching up on all the sleep he missed over the weekend so I thought that since Mum had much more time on her hands this evening it was a good opportunity to attempt renegotiating my bedtime routine.

First I renegotiated what I was allowed to take to bed. I thought I was in luck when Mum said I could have as much as I could take up the stairs in one go. In practice that proved to be less than I thought.

Once in my bedroom I decided that lights off time needed to be extended.  The gate at the top of the stairs was locked so I had to work my negotiating magic from the landing.

I pulled out all my best tactics but nothing was bending Mum.  I ended up being taken back to bed on several occasions and loosing the car and baby Maria in the process.

By Ana – still with a 7:30pm bedtime.

    I’m not sure when that magic moment comes in life when suddenly you stop wanting to negotiate less sleep and start pleading for more sleep – and an earlier bedtime. It could have something to do with becoming a parent!

    Hi Ana, This is when you learn that some things are just NOT NEGOTIABLE. In my life I have found that grown-ups are the ones who decide what is (and what is not) negotiable. Is that fair?
