Bedtime with a two year old can be a challenging time. We find it’s best when she’s given choices that she thinks she’s making.
“Do you want to brush your teeth first or mommy?”
“Do you want mommy to pick a book or you to pick one?”
“What song do you want to sing?”
Nobody likes an upset two screaming two year old. Amiright?
Since it was just E and me at bedtime while the bigs were AWANA, I let her do a little more. “Want to take a picture for mommy?”
And so it was.
Book selection “Where the Wild Things Are” which happens to be one of my favorites! I was glad she picked that one!
Do you have tips or tricks for keeping your wild thing a little less wild?
It’s time again for Mommy and Me Monday. Pop out from behind that camera and capture yourself in action with your kids. Check out the inaugural Mommy and Me Monday for more information.

**There really is only one requirement here, a picture of you and your baby or babies; your children, your “baby” (ie significant other) or even your fur babies. If your picture doesn’t feature you (meaning you must be in the picture), I will have to delete your link. It’s not fair to the others that follow the rules.**
I try to make sure and visit all of you and leave some comment love. Please spread the love! And, I never mind the comments, either.
