Toddler Torture

Luke has been sleeping really well for the past few days (furiously knocking on wood here) and has even been going down for his naps reasonably well. Of course, I've resorted to a mild form of torture to get this to happen. Basically, we put Luke in bed. He gets up. We explain to him that if he gets up again, he'll go in the crib. He gets up again. We put him in the crib.

Commence crying. "*sob* Car bed!! *hic* *sob*"

Allow 5-15 minutes to pass. Release toddler from crib, reiterating the point that if he gets out of the car bed, he goes back to the crib. Apparently this is effective punishment to keep him in bed and he falls asleep.
