Newest Bedtime Update

For the last 2 nights Cam has had a 5 mg ritalin before bed. I don't know for sure whether it's the ritalin or if it's because we've done different things, but the screaming fits aren't as bad. They're still there, but nowhere NEAR as frustrating has they had been.
Last night it was nice because he was SO exhausted from camping with daddy that he just passed out. Unfortunately it was at the top of the stairs, but he was NOT screaming for us. *YAY*
Tonight I decided to let him sleep in the living room until one of us went to bed. Steve went to sleep a few hours ago (he has early Monday mornings...) and Cam didn't complain, much.
I don't know if it's the meds or the different circumstances, but something is working. Don't know for sure if it's something I WANT, but maybe I'll just have to live with it for a while.

It's because you're Not giving in!!! Be strong!!! He'll learn sooner or later you mean business when you say, "time for bed"! :) Keep it up!
