Teeth-brushing, clothes changing and bathtime refusals, followed by endless requests for drinks, food, and "one more story." Yes, this week Elle and Abigail are talking sleep... or why kids don't want to!

The two moms share tools parents can use to overcome these challenges, including Elle's current favorite, "The Squishes," before talking about handling that tug most of us get: Wanting our "own" time at night, as our kids ramp up desire to be with us.
