While I’d like to say that I have a four year old preschooler that has a normal bedtime and goes to sleep by 8:00 or 9:00 pm that’s not the case! Bedtime has been a tug of war since mini me was born and a lot of it is my fault. As a newborn he slept like any other nursing newborn every 2-3 hours and as his sleeping pattern formed he was sleeping more during the day and up at night. It didn’t really bother me because I was used to being up at night working late on a design project or writing a blog post. So I didn’t correct it. *sighs* Oh… Let me also mention that we
co-slept co-sleep and mini me was is always in the bed with us. So now, he doesn’t like to be in his own bed alone. Sometimes he falls asleep in our bed and I put him in his bed but, most of the time he waits until we are ready to go to sleep and will fall asleep in our bed. Lately I have been trying to stop what I’m doing to lay down with him, put him to bed and get up once he’s sleeping. It doesn’t always work out that way. So mini me was accustomed to watching Nick Jr. before going to bed and watching some of his favorites from Ni Hao Kai Lan, Yo Gabba Gabba & Little Bill just to name a few and then that all changed on October 1st.
On October 1st starting at 10 pm Nick Jr. is Now NickMom until about 1:30 am. I love all the shows! NickMom Night Out keeps me in stitches, I am cracking up with Parental Discretion, Mom Friends Forever is awesome and who doesn’t like a classic like What was Carol Brady Thinking? Well, mini me about flipped out on October 1st at 10:00 pm. He had eaten dinner, gotten his bath and was ready to lay in bed and watch Nick Jr. when all of a sudden NickMom comes on… He immediately looks at me and says MOM where’s my Noggin? I had to explain that from now on Mommy got to enjoy a little bit of his channel and that he should be asleep anyway! He immediately says… “My Nick jr. is getting ruined, it’s ruined now!” He begins to whine and have a preschool breakdown at bedtime. It took real restraint to not burst out laughing at the way he was carrying on! He goes on to rant… “ I don’t like NickMom, it’s not fair” “and “I hate NickMom!” If we weren’t all comfy in PJ’s I might have pulled out the camcorder to record this rant! Needless to say… I’m totally enjoying NickMom and mini me needs to get over it and go to bed!
