In an effort to alter Rei's sleep resistance, we're bribing her with an umbrella. For each night of positive night behaviour, she was rewarded with some Smarties. A series of three consecutive Smarties mornings translates, in our sleep economics, to one umbrella.
She's become fixated on yo-yo's and umbrellas since seeing them featured in some of her TV shows. Figuring a yo-yo would be too frustrating for a toddler, we decided the umbrella would be the great reward that would convince our daughter to sleep in her own bed without histrionics.
According to her, she did a good job with sleeping last night and we will go to the umbrella store to buy her a red umbrella. Yes, she's quite clear about what she wants.
