|Faith has been doing great getting up and ready for school in the mornings!|
While the mornings have been going great, we have a new battle to face at night. Getting her to bed has become our latest battle - one we thought we had already won. Sometimes as a ploy to get her own way, she tells us she wants more food in her tummy so she can stay up and watch her iPad.
I have a friend from college who has posted accounts on Facebook that she has actually had to pin her child down to keep her in bed at night. I'm sure if Faith could, she would be getting out of bed. The most she can do though is try to scoot herself off the bed. And that, along with making a lot of noise is the battle that ensues at night.
This past Friday night the only way we could get her to agree to go to sleep without having a nighttime screaming fit is for me to lay down in her bed with her. At midnight, she was still wide awake. I finally gave up and Rob took her out of bed and sat up with her on the couch. She screamed for about ten minutes before finally drifting off to sleep. Thankfully, none of us had to get up and go anywhere the next morning.

Faith can be very strong willed - which has its good and bad points but we are both thankful that she is a fighter nonetheless. We just have to help her find the right things to fight for! And fighting going to bed just isn't one of them.
