My children however have every reason in the book as to why they can't sleep. Tyler came up to me last night 10 minutes after laying down and said he couldn't breathe right. He was breathing fine - just making as much noise as possible while doing so. I told him to try breathing with his mouth shut - he tried it - and then said "oh, that's much better!"
Once asleep my children have always slept soundly. (for the most part). Yes I am one of those few lucky Moms whose children slept through the night by 3 months old. The sleeping part isn't the problem. It's the getting there. See the twins have always shared a room. While being separated at night is something that absolutely terrifies them, being together can makes bedtime difficult. So here are the TOP 10 reasons to get out of bed - per Nathaniel and Tyler.
- I have to go to the bathroom.
- I need a cup of water.
- I like your bed better.
- The light won't work.
- It's not dark yet. (in the summer)
- It's too dark. (in the winter)
- He called me a selfish hairball!
- He won't stop making me laugh.
- He has a toy.
- He spit on me!

Why won't your kids go to sleep?
