..to keeping my child in her bed.
Take her swimming after dinner and wear her out. hehe. We recently joined the Y, and have taken her swimming a few times. She is so exhausted afterwards! She wears the little swim vests they have and swims "all by herself." We'll just go from one end of the pool to the other, her giggling the whole time (and us giggling too, at our alterior motive!)
She took a book to bed last night and fell asleep with it on her face. LOL. This Y membership is going to prove to be a great investment.
Funny side story-- be careful what words you teach your toddler. While I was changing in the locker room afterwards, she proceeded to yell to the whole room, "Ooooh! Mommy's nickels!" (ahem..nipples). Good times.
