When I was little there was this book I loved called "Bedtime for Frances." In the story Frances has to go to bed, but every time her parents put her in bed she asks for something: one last kiss, a glass of water, a light on, etc. The theme to the story is similar to that of "If you Give a Mouse a Cookie," the character always needs ONE more thing.
Now, I'm reliving the book through Christopher :/ Every night right as I go towards the stairs he has some request: wants water, wants to be tucked in, wants a kiss, wants a book, wants the light on, and even tries to ask for things that are off limits at bedtime like to have his computer. Eventually, I tell him this IS it and then the crying begins....... It's exhausting. Anyone have this with their child(ren) or have some suggestions on what I can do? We do have a strict bedtime routine and plug in a night light.
