Look at that face, so sweet and innocent.........

but come bedtime..N-I-G-H-T-M-A-R-E!!!!

He is so good at naps, practically crawls right into bed around 2 o'clock.  But when nightime comes around we hear "I can't go to sleep!" about seventy two times before he actually hops into his bed.  Last night, which is a typical night went a little something like this...

Mama:  "Ok get in your bed please"
Kyle:  "I can't go to bed"
Mama:  "Why not?"
Kyle:  " need five more minutes"
Mama:  "You've had about three five more minutes"
Kyle:  "How bout read a book?"
Mama:  "We've read plenty of books"
Kyle:  "I need Mr. Owl"
Mama:  "OK, here you go"
Kyle:  "I need milk"
Mama:  "You already had milk"
Kyle:  "Juice"
Mama:  "Um no"
Kyle:  "How bout water"
Mama:  "How bout no, close your eyes"

10 seconds goes bye, and he starts to whisper

Kyle:  "The issy bissy spider..."
Mama:  "Kyle please be quiet and close your eyes"
Kyle:  "I can't I'm singing!"
Mama:  "Kyle!"
Kyle:  "I can't go to sleep...I'm too heavy"
Mama:  "Ky...!"
Kyle:  "I'm too big"
Mama:  "Shhh, please roll over and go to bed"
Kyle:  "Mom, I'm talking to youuuuuuuuuuuuu!"
Mama:  "I know but its time to sleep!"
Kyle:  "I need your hair"
Mama:  "Good night Kyle, I love you"
Kyle:  "Good night, yuv you!"

20 seconds goes bye...

Kyle:  "A, B, C, D, Eeeeeeeeee..."

And then the cycle starts all over again for a good 30 to 60 minutes.  Its exhausting!

Now you know why Dom and I take turns putting him to bed!
