We love bedtime at our house and we have decided to share some of the reasons why. By sharing all the reasons why each night Kevin cannot go to bed so here they are in no particular order. He usually comes out about 4-5 times on average a night using these excuses.
- I need water
- I need to go to the bathroom
- I need covered
- My leg hurts
- My back hurts
- I hit my head on my bed
- Adam is crying, I don't like it
- Adam has a stinky diaper (he never really does)
- I'm hungry
- I want a hug
- It is too bright
- My music isn't working
- My eyes are itching
- my ear is itching
- I'm not tired
- I'm too hot
- I'm too cold
- My foot/leg is asleep
- There is a bug in my room
- My Darth Vader toy is too scary
- my night light is not working
- Balloons are dangerous in my room, here dad...
- I tooted, I might have to poop
Although each night we get rather agitated we know he just wants to make sure he is not missing out on any of the fun. We love him and all his excuses for not going to sleep.

I think my favorites are that his ear itches or that he hit his head on his bead. Classic! Kudos to you for writing them all down so that you can always remember them.

I'm glad we're not the only ones with this problem. :)

We here a lot of those excuses too. I think it is just the age.
