I am sitting here, perched on the edge of Little E's bed at 8:49pm. She is still not asleep.
She is 4yrs old but yet I still need to sit here, sometimes for up to 2hrs to get her to fall asleep.
It is a roulette. Some nights she is fast asleep within half an hour. Some nights I almost have to snake charm her to sleep. Husband and I regularly eat dinner post 9pm because of this rigmarole. In fact 2 pies are burning in the oven right now because I am sitting here.
She has never been easy to put to sleep. We are taking lullabies and crawling out of the room on all fours. I used to feel pride when I finally got her to sleep but now it is despair. Surely by now she should be able to go to sleep without me losing my whole evening!
What an I doing wrong? Seriously, does everyone do this?
