The Santa Bribe.. Happening now and not working

I feel bad that I am in the process (I’m laying in her bed as I type this on my iphone) of bribing my 3 year old to take a nap by saying that Santa brings gifts to sweet girls not naughty girls. I didn’t do that with my now 10 year old when he was 3 years old. I didn’t have to.

I feel bad because I know she’s going to get gifts no matter what. I guess I didn’t lie though. ‘Santa’ prefers to bring gifts to sweet kids rather than naughty kids.

Sigh.. she just sat up in bed and with the cutest voice said “Mommy, I don’t know how to sleep”.

Wish me luck!

UPDATE: She’s asleep on my chest now.
