Last night the door remained unlocked.

Several things could have been a factor. One, my husband was the one to put him to bed. D absolutely pushes at me harder than my husband, so that could have been part of it. I sort of hope not, because I have to put him to bed some nights and so we have to get him to go to bed for me as well.

Two, and perhaps most importantly, D was uber exhausted. Friday was Halloween of course and he was a trick or treating maniac. He was out late, as we expected (although that night he still got up and threw a fit, although a short lived one, behind his locked door) and also as expected, didn't sleep in AT ALL on Saturday. Then we spent the entire day at my ILs on Saturday, getting home late again. He was super, duper tired. He'd slept some in the car, but woke up about 1/2 hour before we got home, so it wasn't like he was sleeping still and we just transfered him from the car to his bed.

Today he finally got a sticker on his sticker chart, he got to choose one toy to get out of time out, and he will get to read books again at bedtime. If he does another good bedtime, we'll start putting some of his things back in his room. I'll probably start with the lightbulbs from his overhead light. It's pain not having those in there, LOL.
