We've always had a rough time trying to get Curtis to go to bed. It's not unusual to see him wandering around at 10:00, 10:30, 11:00 at night. But finally, a few months ago, things started to get better. We'd let him play the iPad in his bed for a couple of minutes and then he'd go right to sleep. Miracle.
But now that summer's here, he's started wandering again and we're back to square one. Whenever he comes out of his room, he always has a demand.
Me: Curtis, you need to go back to bed.
Curtis: Not unless you make me a floor bed (meaning let him sleep on our floor).
Curtis: Not unless you let me watch or show.
Curtis: I'm not ever going to bed until it's morning.
We've heard each of these requests a million times. But last night it was something new.
Me: Curtis, you need to go to bed.
Curtis: No. Not until you watch Karate Kid with me for 10 minutes.
Karate Kid?! Well, now we have a deal.
