Quoting Minion:" Also I am happy to report that he went to bed with no issues tonight. I have him and DD their snack, ... [snip!] ... him on the bed. He laughed and let me tuck him in and e said "I love you, goodnight" and rolled over and they are quiet. "
oh, good! i'm glad the rest of the night went better! it does seem with these things that it is a "pick your battles" type of deal mostly. but, with any kid, it's always nice to just be more conscious of what you're willing to compromise on and what you're not. i think a lot of times, parents forget to do that, lol.
