I have heard about this stage and read up a little bit but now that its here.....well my adulting skills are very much lacking. Below are the ideas that we have entertained:
Monster Spray - Bad because this supposedly teaches them there may possibly be real monsters lurking. My personal mom skills say, go for it, you do what you need to do.
Co sleeping - This could teach them it's ok to sleep in your bed ALL of the time and I very much believe we have our own beds for a reason. This is for my saftey AND my little humans. I don't prefer to get kicked in the face every 2 minutes and I'm very sure my little human doesn't want to get shoved off the bed!!!!!
Sitting with them for an extended period of time - NO adulting gets done with this option. Kind of nice you say, sure! But when there is no clean underwear left, there are toys scattered everywhere, and dinner dishes to get washed........ adulting becomes a must.
Doing nothing - Well I'm pretty sure this would not work for any human. How do you possibly do nothing?
Well adult humans, I am here to tell you there is no right thing to do. You mix it up and try your best to do what works for you and your little human. No one day is the same in our monster infested hideout.
Right now we are watching Rescuers and he says, oh look at that spooky ship mom. Ohhhh creepy look at those trees!!! Well, looks like I'm sitting here a little longer. #notadultingtonight
