Kate gets up almost every night and ask one of us to sleep with her. Honestly, I never go - John always goes. She has a twin bed - it's so small and bright in there. We have tried everything to get her to stay in her bed - teddy bear, night light, music, sound machine, fan, more dolls...nothing works. Recently, we decided to bribe her. At first it was with candy, that lasted a few days. Saturday night, she wanted to sit in big church on Sunday instead of going to Sunday School and we said she could if she slept by herself. She didn't make it, so to Sunday school she went.
Last night, she slept all by herself...and her reward? DONUTS! She was so excited. She got up saying....I get donuts because I slept all by myself!!!
Luke never has a problem sleeping all night or by himself. He did try to tackle this donut...he's not a big sweets fan, but he made a pretty good try.
If anyone out there has some sure fire tricks, let me know. I'm also thinking about a chart with stickers and when she has sleeps 5 times she gets to pick out a small toy? Has that worked for anyone?
