It just seems like the days never end and Viola early enough in the morning they are up and about with a boundless energy; from where I can not Fathom.
When school was in session it was pretty easy.
On a typical school night my almost 3year old drops off without a care or bother early enough. Most nights her big bro (almost 5years) follows suit soon after, because he is fagged out after a vibrant active day of study and play at school.
But the holidays are a different kettle of fish entirely. They want to totally milk the 24hour day.
What can I do to check this when both parents work and often get home quite late to meet our kids waiting to catch a glimpse of us before they even think of going off to bed.
At times there is no easy answer I know, especially if both parents work late (not by choice mind you).
Do you know some bedtime secret weapons that work?; let us know!
