    Bathroom, pyjamas, teeth, into bed - one story, 2 songs and then lie with her for up to 1/2 hour (story and songs are included in that time). If she's sleeping sooner, I leave, if she's not, I tell her I will check on her while she's sleeping and then leave - that took WORK since up until a month ago we had to stay til she fell asleep (which was sometimes taking more than an hour!). We are not so strict on bed time since we will do it much earlier if she doesn't nap (like last night she went to bed by 6) and later if she has a really late nap (sometimes not until 8:30/9). But we prefer getting her into bed between 7:30 & 8 with a decent nap during the day.

    Oh man, that's awesome! We haven't discovered any bedroom creatures yet...but she watched some Winnie the Pooh on youtube yesterday and there were Heffelumps and Woozles under the bed. She cried for me to turn it off. Ohhhhh no. I hope that doesn't start anything.

    We had a night or two of scary monsters (shortly after watching Monsters, Inc. which we have retired for a bit now), but he is too funny about the dragons.

    It started that they were scary dragons on the ceiling and then I convinced him that they must just be cranky because they didn't eat any dinner. He decided they like PB&J sandwiches the best, so we feed them those and send them back to their mommies. It's totally cute. I was afraid of everything as a kid (still am as an adult, lol) so I'm trying to give him options to change up his imagination into something more friendly.

    Oh man, that's SO cute. I agree, it's great to teach kids they can change it up in their imagination!

    I was so excited to find a new Strawberry Shortcake DVD for DD at the thirft store last week. It was about camping too! How perfect! Then I got home and read the back...one kid is afraid of the dark. UGH! I'm not opening THAT can of worms thanks!

    My DD does fine with Monsters, Inc and whatnot, but then my niece (who's a year older than DD) tells my DD that there are real monsters hiding in the closets and under her bed. Nice, thanks niece. Took literally a month for me to convince her that her cousin wasn't all-knowing and was making it up. UGH!
