I'm finding bedtime difficult since we moved him into a bed. Sometimes it goes like a dream and sometimes it's like tonight and I end up at a complete loss. He's going to sleep later and later at night and I'm not sure what to do about it.

Hmm... does he still take naps? I think it's probably still new for him. Stick to a bedtime routine and he'll probably get used to it eventually. I'm sorry for the lack of sleep though!

I agree with Dina, but also wanted to share that we've been in the same boat.. I think the longer summer days are definitely contributing to it all, and I'm starting to wonder about naps... I'm really not ready to give up MY quiet time in the afternoon, but He goes to bed sooo much easier on days he hasn't napped...

We are battling with bedtime too, its gone 9pm most nights. i think its because of the heat, it was still over 100º at 9pm last night!

We all nap for 2 hours in the afternoon, so thats not an option!

I hope he gets back into his routine, lack of sleep is a killer!

We are battling the longer days, as well. It is so hard to go inside when the nicest part of the day is between 7:30pm and 9:30pm. We have been hitting the 10:30 mark lately. And I have to lay down with Presley b/c she is terrified of being alone in a room, even during the day. So usually, I end up falling asleep in her bed with her. She thinks that Mommy is supposed to sleep with her in her twin bed and Daddy gets the big bed all to himself. Hmph!

Thank you Mama Trish for my fabulous siggies!

Glad and sorry to hear that I'm not alone. We have a pretty elaborate bedtime ritual that usually works really well for us. But I think everyone might be on to something with the long days interfering. He has a bath from 7 - 7:30, we read on my bed from 7:30 to 8 and then Daddy takes him to bed and tells him the next installment in "Dragon Story". Part of the problem is that he gets wound up again because of Dragon Story. So when I go in to tuck him in and sing a a song he bounces up and starts the stalling rituals. Then I get pissy because I'm left wondering what happened to the sleepy little boy that Daddy led off to bed.

Tonight we tried something different. Right after dinner we headed to the playground for a solid half hour of climbing and running. Bedtime was EASY tonight.

Yeah we always send the kids out to play for at least 30 minutes after dinner when it's nice out to wear them out. They always are better at bedtime that way.

All the kids are out of schedule right now with school being out. We've got to get on a better routine, or a routine of any sort for that matter.

Thank you *kiliki* for the beautiful siggy!
