But Mummy, I Don’t Like My Bedroom!

2nd February 2011 7 Comments

Boy has decided he really really doesn’t like his bedroom. He had decided this a few months ago, so we swapped his room with his sisters. However, now we have gone from small torch at night, through nightlight to having the light on full. He is on a mission to obtain my bedroom. He will fail, he will not conquer and plant his (Ben 10) flag in my room.

It is totally my fault, I have allowed him to decamp and sleep in our bed. On occasion he has even evicted myself or the husband. I have to admit that the best nights sleep I have had in the past four years have been in his single bed. Dark, quiet, cosy…

Anyway, this evening the boy went to new lengths. After shouting for a while I relented and went up, to comfort or tell him off. Basically as the moment struck me. He was wet, really soaking wet. Considering there had been an Austin Powers style wee less than half an hour previously something odd had clearly happened. I’m not one to panic, but inside I did wonder about his kidneys. Then I remembered the crying in bed incident. That’s the one where he used the water in his water bottle as fake tears and sat in his bed making overly dramatic acted 2 year old sobbing noises until I came to find him in a tear soaked puddle…

Yes that’s right, tonight the water has been used for a new purpose. Tonight the water bottle was opened and then put into his pyjama pants. Unsurprisingly, the water literally flowed out into his overnight nappy and onto the bed. He denied this, at first. Try keeping a straight face in those circumstances! You have to give him ten out of ten for effort, what levels will he stoop to next though on this capture mummy’s bedroom mission?

    Very resourceful, that boy! Tweeva just hates her bed, and will only sleep on the bedroom floor….

    Hello, I just found your blog and your quirky/darkish humor appeals to me, and regarding this post, your boy is clearly a genius. <br />xxx

    You have to admit that he&#39;s very sneaky! Marks for effort<br /><br />Bigger is trying a similar landgrab and would far prefer to curl up with me in our bed if given a choice and to be fair in the middle of the night I&#39;m a wuss and tend to give in<br /><br />Am going to try the way of letting her choose her own bedding and see if that works…
