Lately our bedtime routine has included a negotiation that proceeds as follows:
Henry: I want to sleep with Mommy for a little bit…
Me: But, what if I lay down with you for a little bit?
Henry: No, I want to sleep with Mommy.
The negotiation usually ends with the suggestion that he go ask Mommy. But, sometimes I ask again…and again.
Last night, Henry had a novel solution. He suggested that we all lay down in his bed for a little bit.
