Either Miles has OCD or he is just very particular about bed time routines. Everything must be in the right spot. If something is messed up he cries by the door until one of us comes in and fixes it. For example..if one of his batman toys falls over he has a panic attack!
He makes his checks before prayer...saying "blankies, book, water, light, batman bucket..etc"
He has to say the prayer now...even when we tell him it's "mommy's turn" or "Daddy's turn" he will repeat after what we say.
Most nights things go pretty smoothly..I always know he will go right to sleep when I ask him to "close his eyes' and he shuts them tightly. I love a sleeping Miles!
