Griffin is suddenly, and inexplicably afraid of the dark.
I don't know where this came from. Is it just a product of him growing, and his cognitive awareness expanding? (Woah. Big words for this here blog!) Oh should we maybe have saved "Psycho" until he was a little bit older? (Kidding, people...we'd never let him watch a movie like that until he was AT LEAST 6.)
Seriously - the kid will not go to sleep without the lights on. It's like fricking Wal-Mart in his bedroom, and he's bouncing up and down, all around the town, because there's nothing really signaling "SLEEP TIME" anymore. Nothing says bedtime quite like turning out the lights. If I turn the light off, or even try to turn it down a bit, he FREAKS! There is a more than decent night light in his room, and a even more than decent reading light next to the rocking chair, but NO!! Gotta be the bedside light. Oh, and if he's in our bed, for whatever reason? Lights on there too!
WTF people? Anybody have any tips, aside from buy a fricking blindfold?
