Two peas in a pod

So apparently it is true that your kids will listen to others but not their parents. I had that little meeting where I pulled my hair out and pleaded with the school psychologist about that fact that they don't sleep. I am nodding off as I am yelling-Go To Sleep from my bed to theirs. How do they do it??
They were sent to bed about 8-8:30 and the battle would continue until 1 of us collapsed in exhaustion around 10.
I have to admit I gave up on keeping them in their own beds. Her quote-"Pick your battles."
This is the scene from Olivia's bed the other night at about 8:30. I actually thought they had unplugged the monitor as they couldn't have possibly already fallen asleep. I think besides Monday they have been in bed by 8:30 - I probably just jinxed myself but oh, well. Of course Monday I worked an evening overtime shift so Nana put them to bed and they were back to their old crap and got a spanking and weren't asleep until 10 but they are going to push where they can.
So somethings are getting better. Little by slow. Add this to the list of things that Miss Poole told me to ignore and they would go away.
