Kei usually puts Thomas to bed at night while I look after Samuel and, honestly, I think putting him to bed is a skill. This kid has become so manipulative. I used to be able to stop him at three books but the other night he managed to stretch that to five (pleeeeease). Then he asked for some water, had a bad dream and at one point stood at his door and said it was time to get up and he just wanted to have some “quiet time” in the playroom. Time I started putting him to bed: 7:00. Time he finally went to sleep: 9:15.
