Which of the following did I say to the Bear in an effort to get her to go to sleep tonight?*
A. Why don't you lay in bed and read a book? Sometimes mommy reads in bed!
B. If you don't sleep tonight, you'll have to stay in bed all day tomorrow.
C. Sometimes it's okay to cry, but you still can't get out of bed.
D. You just woke your sister. Now mommy is Not. Happy.
E. I don't care where you want to sleep, this is your bed and you're staying in it.
F. If you keep yelling like that, I'll come in here and sit on you. And I may fart.
G. If you don't sleep, you'll never grow, and you'll be three feet tall forever.
H. Daddy's at work, so we can't call him. If he was here, he'd make you go to bed just like mommy.
I. If I don't hear another peep out of you all night long, we'll make muffins for breakfast in the morning.
Which do you think made her finally roll over and go to sleep?
*At 10:30, 2 1/2 hours after I first put her down
