Every night its a battle to put my 5 yr old son to bed. Both me and my husband are going crazy since he wont stay in his bed. I get him ready for jamies on, brushing are teeth , and going potty before bed. Then i usually read him a bedtime story and then when done kiss him and tuck him and say goodnight to him. The thing that is driving me crazy is he keeps on getting up out of his bed. He usually tells me i have to go potty and that is usually every 3 min or so getting saying i have to go potty again or can i tell you something mommy i love and can i give you a hug and a kiss which is great. Bur he doese this every night and keeps doing it way past his bed time to the point where i have to scream sometimes or even spanke him for getting up who knows how may times a night. I have to go to work the next and plus i need my sleep since i am pregnant with my second child and am 15 weeks now and i need my sleep. Sometimes doesnt go to bed till 10 / 11 at night and i am at witts end and not sure what to do anymore about this. The stress isnt helping me since that makes me cranky and moody more so then i need to be while pregnant. If could get some advise on what to do that be great.
