  2. Not at all, but remember when you’re up all night proving there is no grue hiding under the bed to a nightmared up toddler that you totally ‘made the bed’, so to speak 😉

  3. I’m still trying to figure out the best way of dealing with the inevitable “Mommy, you forgot to [insert part of bedtime routine here, which HAS already been done]” stall tactic. I usually get one step out the door of the twins’ room when that happens.

  5. Nah, you’re cool. *I*, however, am certainly going straight to hell for telling a Kindergartner that Santa doesn’t bring presents to kids who don’t participate in class. I’ll never live that one down, even though it WORKED.
