My toddler figured out that I fake sleep at bedtime and now I’m screwed

Fake sleeping in the same room as your kid to get them to fall asleep - I think EVERY parent has done this. Haven't you seen that viral video of the mom fake sleeping on her toddler's nursery floor, then crawling out slowly after her kid passes out? The move is pretty standard, but sadly for me my toddler has not only figured out that I am faking it, but has a strategy to get me to crack too. You can't just break formation in front of a toddler like that!!! The bed time struggle is so real right now... please tell me there are other toddler moms out there who are on the struggle bus too!

Planning a Perfectly Seattle Father’s Day

So you had a baby and your dog disowned you… the story of transitioning our dog to life with a baby, and some advice to help you!

How do you prepare your dog for life with a new baby? This can be particularly difficult, especially in instances like ours where we had our dog for YEARS before having a kid, and she had limited exposure to children beforehand. My daughter is over two years old now and we are STILL working on this transition, but are doing much better than we initially were. I hope that our story helps you in your journey to get your dog to like your baby after spending a long time as your "only child".
