Bun out of the oven!

I was so glad to come back and see a post about the threenager that many of us might be experiencing. Sheesh. I am so glad to read I'm not the only one!!

Here's my question. I have been extremely sick - 2 bouts of meningitis, complications from a brain tumor, etc. Claire has had a TERRIBLE time sleeping, and I don't know if it's the age or if it is because of my health issues. Often times, she's back in our bed. Before this started she was sleeping through the night in her own room, and now we're lucky if we can get her in a different bed in our room. I don't have a resolution to the health issues, so I wonder if I should just leave it be. The main problem is that she can't sleep until really late. (Which I'm thinking is her waiting up for me to come to bed.)

We've been dealing with this too. Although my health issues aren't nearly as severe as yours. I've
tried to make a deal with Izze. I try to make her bedtime a routine and something she feels secure in. I tell her she can come in my bed when the sun is up. She usually comes in around 4 though. If she wakes up and she's still in her bed, I make a big deal out of it and remind her how good it feels.

It's not a big deal to me if she sneaks in our bed, but I like for her to fall asleep in her own bed so I can have time with my husband.

Hope your health issues subside soon. :)
