Nava has been doing well with her floor bed set up. But unfortunately she had started resisting bedtime more and more-as in I-know-whats-coming-and-I-don't-wanna-go-to-sleep-now sort of thing. I took comfort in the pride that she had the cognitive skills to know what bedtime was and resist but it still was killing my evenings and wrecking my dinnertime.
And then Dad was home for 10days straight and did every single bedtime. Ahhhhh....
And then I had a wild idea. I juiced up the ipod and brought it to bed and turned on an audiobook. Sleep passed out near instantly. 3 days running and its still working. The combo of the audiobook plus her now fully firmly established 1 nap per day (2 hours long) are really paying off. And mommy is happy!
So, why THUNK? Because she continues to roll off her (nearly King sized) floor futon and onto the wood floor. With a THUNK we can hear downstairs. Sometimes she says totally asleep. Sometimes a low groan begins but she's still out. Rarely it can cause crying. Sometimes we come up to move her back on her mattress and she's under our bed!!
