Sleep troubles!

If you're a mom, I'm sure you know it's not all fun and games in mommyland.. some days are just crazier than others, and some kids are just difficult by nature...at least I think mine are, although I'm sure every mother feels like this at some point, right? (please say yes!)....
We've been having some issues lately in the sleep department, because even do the girls do sleep through the night (thank God), it is SO HARD to get them to bed on time... Their bedtime is being progressively pushed to a later time and I'm so exhausted...
I've been lectured by some on this subject, even by Olivia's teacher, who insinuated she was "disruptive" for not sleeping.. (what a b***h)
They also wake up insanely early (in relation to the time they go to bed), and are so full of energy all day long... Can I say NO NAP! Oh my.. I'm so tired..
Gaby is a little better about it, but with Olivia around, there isn't much she can do... By the time 9pm approaches, they're both complaining about not wanting to go to sleep, and they're up as early as 6:30am.. even on weekends.. it's just nuts!!
Please, someone tell me what to do to get these girls to sleep a little longer... I'm so tired!!!!

Sorry, no advice, but you are not alone - I'm sure many would say Brooke doesn't get enough sleep either! Brooke goes to bed between 8:30 and 9:30 (sometimes even closer to 10!) every night and then gets up at 7:45 during the week. On weekends if she gets up that early, I tell her it's too early and to go back to sleep (the beauty of her still being in a crib!) and she normally sleeps until 8:30.

It might sound mean but I am so happy I just read that. I am having the exact same problem with Adina. She used to kiss us and say good night and run to her bed, now every night she has a different excuse not to go and the same as yours she wakes up at 6:30am....
I am exhausted too and cant get to rest because I am always thinking that she will wake up...
Good luck!!!
