Fake It Till You Make It

We've been having SUCH a hard time with Ramona at bed time recently, so I'm grasping at anything that might move the process along.

I'm dealing with an issue of planter fasciitis so at different times there's pain in my heel that causes me to walk on my tiptoes. I was doing this the other night, and was pleasantly surprised by the outpouring of sympathy and cooperation that Ramona had for me. Bedtime was a breeze, as was the whole going to the bathroom and teeth brushing process. I'm not even ashamed to admit that even though my foot wasn't hurting the next night I faked it and totally did it again with equally great results.

I know this isn't a long-term solution but oh boy what a great short-term solution ! My hope is that by the time my foot magically cures itself, she'll have forgotten all about what a stinker she used to be at bedtime!

sorry to hear about your foot, that's painful.
But I am glad to see that you were able to turn it around into something positive.
