It's not funny, but it is

For a while now I have been dealing with Kara being reluctant to go to sleep. Every time she's getting ready for a nap or bed she fights it with all her might. At first I could get her to calm down within a few minutes. Now it's more like half an hour. And let me tell you she can scream very, very LOUD! All I know to do is rock her until she passes out. So tonight was probably the worst time we have had. I would lay her down and she would start screaming like something was killing her. So I thought maybe she was in pain. I picked her up and she started smiling (little booger). I tried everything I could and sure enough the only time she was upset was when I would lay her down. So I thought maybe if I gave her a stern talking to it would help the problem. I kid you not as soon as I started telling her that "night, night time shouldn't be a fight, we would have fun in the morning" she started laughing at me. Not just a little either. A lot, a whole lot. More than she's ever laughed at me before. I had been taking pictures of her earlier and had my camera in arms length. So I took this little video of her. She is so rotten! What am I going to do with this child? I couldn't help but start laughing too. I guess me being stern is quite laughable, but I am working on it. Really I am. As I type she's in her bed crying again. Jeez, I guess I am in for a long night. Hope you all have a happy one.

I think that Kara is training you pretty good, LOL. Hope you both finally got some sleep!

I don't know what to tell you on this one...maybe rocking her to sleep isn't the best idea, but it sounds good to me!
