Mommy thoughts

Gosh, sometimes I can't believe I have two kids. It was weird seeing them both sitting with Santa and thinking, those boys are mine. Wow. They are great kids. Cooper is my sleeping champ, starting to eat 2 meals a day, lovin' his food. Spencer is so smart and fun to be around. He is a happy boy. His babysitter says he is perfect there. Another parent that helps out sometimes even commented that it is too bad all the kids aren't like Spencer.
Then the little stinker comes home to me....he is a bit onry, how do you spell it...on-ree? Today we counted up to 20 together! Then I said, let's say our ABC's. He said, "No, mommy, I don't want to." Funny boy!
Another BIG issue we are working on his sleep, going to bed at night. He won't stay in his bed. He keeps getting out, even though he knows the consequences: a closed door, which he hates. We have a safety child proof doorknob on his door, so I hate to have it closed because I don't want him to remember being locked in his room! After he falls asleep, we close the door so he won't wander the house if he awakes at night. But once he's asleep, he's down for the night. Oh well....any suggestions??? I've asked a few friends, but seems like everyone with kiddos this age is having some sort of sleep problems.
Tonight we went to a birthday party for Spence's cousin Tyler. He's 2! Yay! Happy Birthday!

I do the same thing Amy--the threat of a closed door still works for Corbin at Age 4. Unfortunately, he still ends up in our bed at least 3 nights a week. Slowly, but surely, he will get into his own bed every night!!!
