My Night Owl

My Sadie is a night owl. We have the hardest time getting her to go to bed. It takes her anywhere from 1 1/2 to 2 hours to fall asleep. She did not get this from me! We have been trying different things to see what works with her and have not found anything yet. The other night we put her down around 8:30, by 10 it had gotten really quiet so we thought she had finally gone to sleep. Just a few minutes later she appeared in the doorway wearing her bikini swimsuit(pictured below) and said (" I'm going swimming at Mimi's"). We tried with everything in us to keep a straight face and let her know that we were dissapointed that she wasn't obeying us. But just look at her! She is so stinkin cute that we just started cracking up and of course I had to take a picture.

The point of this post is to not only show you how adorable my little night owl is, but to also get some advice from other parent's out there. Have you dealt with a night owl like Sadie? How do you get them to go to sleep?

Ali that is hilarious, the feeling of "wow, you should be in trouble, but this is funny." Jeremy & I try to hide our laughing from the boys all the time when they should be in trouble, but they crack us up instead. Great story. i love it.

I got no idea except maybe ixna nape (no more nap) I don't know... but that is really funny OR you could try just taking her swimming at 10pm... that may work
