For the last few years, The Boy Child has not slept well.
There’s many a night that he can be up out of bed in the middle of the night.
There’s many a night that he can be up out of bed two or three times in the middle of the night.
The pattern is the same.
99% of the time, he trots into our bedroom and fusses until he can get in with us or one of us (usually me) gets out of bed and takes him back to his own bed.
1% of the time, he goes into the bathroom, puts the light on, sits on the loo (seat down) and reads out loud.
Until one of us (usually me) gets out of bed and takes him back to his own bed.
And we haven’t even touched on the early morning starts.
The Boy Child considers any time from 5.30 am a good time to begin his day.
We pushed his bed time back half an hour to 8 pm in the hope he would sleep later.
Today, I took out the single bed from his room and put in the double from the spare bedroom.
He seems to like it.
Only time will tell.
