We've all been there - exhausted and eager for some time out from the kids, and yet they keep getting out of bed and wanting more of us than we have left to give.
The take home message:
Whatever it is, chances are your child really just wants you.
Take an extra five or ten minutes, lay down, relax with your child, and chances are you'll have a much more peaceful night than any other strategy will give you. And you get the added bonus of knowing your child feels your love, feels secure, and is going to be happy.
