Surviving The Change

My keep-the-kids-up-late effort last night was a total success!

Things started getting rough around 11:15 last night. Dylan and Lexie were both crabby and exhausted. They were nearing the end of a movie, so I turned off the lights, covered them up, and it didn't take long for Lexie to pass out.

Dylan, however, got a burst of energy!

After moving Lexie to her bed, I put him to bed, and in less than 3 minutes, he was snoring!

Lexie woke up at 8 AM, and Dylan woke up at 9. Both of them were in bed at 7:00 tonight. My plan worked yet again! Phew!

  6. That same plan,unfortunately,didn't work for us. We let the kids stay up late hoping they would sleep in, but they were ALL up @ 6:15! Oh well, they took nice long naps on Sunday afternoon:)
