Do you have a toddler? Does his or her bedtime routine include crying, hiding in corners, and going Ultimate Warrior on the side of the crib?
For many toddlers this has become their reality as they seek autotomy and control over their environments. Once the crying stops, however, that’s when things REALLY get interesting. It’s bedtime… yes… but even better… it’s STAGE TIME!
The following stage moves have been trialled and approved by my son:
1) Rocking remix versions of “Twinkle Twinkle Little Star”:
2) Using one’s mouth to imitate one’s anus:
I’d love to hear about your children’s stage moves. Please comment and let me know. I will plan to do the following with the comments I get:
- Draw a simple cartoon of your child’s stage move.
- Write a 2nd “It’s Bedtime. It’s Stage-Time!” post in a month or so which will include your child’s move as well as a link to your website (if you have one).
Come on parents and bloggers… get involved!
