Night night...but don't want to sleep.

Little Lyon sleep very late nowadays. After change her into pyjamas, feed her milk, then she will look for her smelly blanket and pacifier. She will waive night night to everyone before enter her bed room (my bed room lar), at the same time she’ll tell everyone: 我要睡觉了,night night…. In the room, she will sing or hum song, roll here and there. After tired of singing alone, she will ask mummy to sing too. She will tell mummy which song to sing. Sometimes I purposely sing wrongly, she’ll correct me. When she bored, she will find excuse to come out from bedroom. She will tell she want to pee, I ask her to pee in diaper, but she said want to pee at her potty….sigh…no way I can stop her. Take off her diaper and bring her out. She was so happy, sitting at her potty and refuses to stand up even though she had finished peeing. Tell you, sometimes she can demand up to 5 times that she want to pee, but in actual, she only pee one time. Then I and she can in and out from the room up to 5 times too! This can drag till 12am!!!! One day I caught her weakness. Dogs bark very loud at night, guess they are fighting. She scared and quickly rolled to me and closed her eyes. At the same time, she pats her chest and telling me: 阿妹怕怕! (Ah Mei scare scare!). I tell her if scare then better sleep now, else the dogs will keep barking and they may come to our house then! LOL….then I sing to her, very soon she fall asleep already! : P She likes to watch dogs and cats, how come so scare ler? I also don't know. So now if she still refuses to sleep, I will make dog, cat or insect sound, and it works most of time! LOL…bad mummy ya....don’t worry, it wouldn’t cause her nightmare!

Hahaha, what a way to get Lyon to sleep. But no choice hor? At least she goes to sleep after u scare her, if not jialat lor.

Whenever Destinee refuses to sleep early, she'll oso have lots of excuses to go out of the room. Want to 'shi shi' lar, want to drink water lar, want to check whether kakak has gone to sleep or not lar, want to 'ng ng' lar, want to eat something becos hungry lar ..... aiyo .....

We have to be innovative sometimes huh as mummy, and occasionally, tell some lies. :P

I'll just switch off the light when it's about bedtime, and let my boy cry for a while, or play by himself in the dark. Then, he'll lie down and go to sleep. But he'll always say he wants another book when I tell him lights off. So, there's always one last book to go lah...

LOL! Good trick. I might use that when Belle is a little older. Right now I threaten her I'll leave the room if she doesn't stay still on the bed. Last night she did that..I really wonder if she actually understood it. Hmm...

Emm...then is better time to stop her using diaper since she wants to pee even with her diaper. Last time my son also said wanted to pee even with the diaper, but i just kept telling him to pee in his diaper and now just too difficult to wean off the diaper.

Jesslyn said...

Luckily for me the kids are always happy to go to bed and will stay there with me beside them of course. So usually I will take them to bed only when I am sleepy myself so we can all fall asleep together. My girl will ask for stories and I set a limit of 3 as for my boy he will talk or sing to himself until he falls asleep.
