Big Girl Bed - Response to Comments

Completely agree about the "swat"-I see that in our near future. I didn't do it last night for 2 reasons:

1) I'm really out of it when I'm awakened like that in the night (I'm crazy when I have newborns & have to do that every night multiple times). Last night the idea didn't even hit me because I couldn't "think".

2) Because I don't think well in the middle of the night, I don't consider it wise to use that method when Dan is not here (and I could wait one night and he would be here-deployment's another issue). I think spanking is fine, but I firmly believe (as I know you guys do) it being done calmly and with a clear head. I could not have trusted myself with either last night.

But there will be no way I will allow a repeat performance. Night time is for sleeping!

I hear ya on needed a level head for spanking. I know you "believe in it". I thought there was probably some reason you didn't use it last night. I'm not good with middle of the night stuff either. Ellie cried (actually screamed like she does at least once every night for no apparent reason) the other night and I was nearly to her door before I woke up enough to realize what I was doing.

I was not trying to say you should do it... I am not sure how doing it and not doing it has worked out for us... bedtimes is crazy for us.... as for pp, well, Evynn wakes up and screams for no reason most every night as well... if you figure out what to do about that let me know!!!
