Green Eyed Monsters and Toddler Beds Woes

White Swan family photo.
***************************
Well, it was inevitable. Mya is not liking sharing her toys. Pretty normal. Can't really capture that on film but suffice it to say that things get grabbed from hands and dirty looks abound. This will pass and of course, spring weather will improve all things. Can't wait til they can go play in the grass and sunshine.

Noah has developed a strong dislike for his room. Also no surprise since he got angry at going back to the hotel room. We think he associated it with having to go to bed. Actually, he did play in there with Mya tonight but somehow he knew that brushing teeth would lead to time for bed. Kids are way too smart. He's still wailing and crying and trying to get out of the toddler bed. Last night Keith gave up when Noah woke in the middle of the night and brought him to bed with us, something I do not wish to continue. Noah is sharing Mya's room. We were hoping that having her close would help lessen this issue and in time, it probably will. After all, it is only the 3rd night. :)

Things will get better. HIs nights and days are so different. I myself was very out of sorts for quite some time even after returning home. We will pray for everyone's adjustments. Love and hugs!

Your journey's been fun! I'm taking notes on the sharing and bedtime issues. Evan is the emperor around here and we are expecting a major uphieval once Asher comes home! Hehe, this too will pass...Blessings, terry

Sharing isn't easy (at ANY age)...Mya will get used to it after awhile and YES, spring will certainly help. Everyone gets a bit crazy stuck inside all day. (I know I do).
Good luck with the sleep issue. You know I can definitely relate.
hugs to you!

My children don't share well and they are 15,12 & 3. I hope that it passes and Mya gets used to Noah. But as siblings, this may be a part of getting used to Noah..she doesn't like the little bro in her stuff : )
