Bedtime has become a chore again. Probably because the kid didn't really have a bedtime this summer and spent so much time with the grandparents. Oops.
As such we have spent way too much time listening to her come up with all sorts of excuses for why she shouldn't go to bed. And overuse of the "I NEED water!" excuse. I particularly like how she dealt with us ignoring her during the nightly temper tantrum:
"ARE YOU LISTENING TO ME?"
"GRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR! ANSWER ME!"
"I AM NOT TIRED"
Sigh. We'll be back in a routine soon, right?
