HELP US!!! GOD PLEASE!!! ANYONE!

Another night and me and my husband are almost in tears 4 hours after we put our 3 yr old to bed. Our 3 yr old Violet has been sleeping in her own bed for one year now and just recently she has decided to stop. We put her to bed early in a very dark room, we have a bedtime routine that we stick to, we are fun loving and firm with her every night, she is happy and bright and stubborn... altogether... it freaks me out. haha. no seriously though.

We won't hear anything from her and think she is asleep, then 1 hour later she will walk out and be awake! Eventually we have to put our 7 yr old to bed, they share a room because they have to. So then we have sibling fights and both kids refusing to go to sleep and will be calling us, fighting and getting out of bed for literally hours ater we put them to bed. Its stupid.

One will fall asleep, the other will wake them up. they go back and forth.
Last night my 7 yr old finally stopped calling me and was sleeping and then we heard crying because my 3 yr old snuck over and jumped on her stomach. And it goes around and around.

We have sat in their bedroom for over 2 hours not speaking to them. We have done all and every supernanny technique. I've tried phsycing them out by smiling and then being really serious and then being happy again... it worked for an hour.

We just had our 3rd daughter who is a few weeks old and this week my husband is working evening shifts... and I am terrified and stressed out. I love my children with a passion and I am a calm and assertive mom... well, most days :) I'm out of ideas and we need help!!!!!!!
