Cogito Patris

Random Thoughts for Random People

I have a problem most parents probably wish they had

So Dante has taken to putting himself to bed.

This is not a bad thing. 

If he gets sleepy in the middle of the day he will go up and take a nap of his own choosing.

At night, after bath, he comes down stairs, grabs his toothbrush and toothpaste and brings them to me.  After I put the toothpaste on the toothbrush he sucks the toothpaste off the toothbrush and then heads upstairs to go to bed.

This is good, except in two instances:

First, Daylight Savings Time.  Even without the bath, he tried to put himself to bed an hour early starting on November 4th.

Second, Last night Angel had a mommy’s club event to go to.  In order to make things easier on me, she gave the kids a bath before dinner.  Dante tried to put himself to bed at 5:45.  It was a struggle to keep him up for the next two hours.

The problem is that if I let him go to bed early, he wakes up early.  And nobody wants that.
