How long are they staying for? If it's just one more night I would let it go, especially as it would mean you wouldn't have to do a lot of bedding transfers!

I would never presume to sleep in my sister's bed.

But I would probably make allowances in the case of a vomiting child.

I don't think you should make the vomiting 4 year old top and tail with your DD even if he seems better confused

Just say DSis and 4 year old in double sofa bed

You and DD in your bed

2 year old in day bed

Does that work? Oh and change your sheets <<boak>>

Can your nephew not sleep on the daybed you were on last night? I can see why you want your own bed but I wouldn't make him top and tail if he didn't want to.

I would ask for bed back or at the very least offer to watch over neice (aged 2) in the double sofa bed and then snuggle in with two years and get as much room as possible. I wouldn't leave a 2yo in a big bed on their own in a strange house.

Definitely keep your own bed. Next time deploy my tactic of having such an untidy house bedroom that nobody would want to be in it.

Plenty of beds and plenty of Options - but yes, you take your own bed.

or she can share sofa bed with her son and put the little one in with your daughter.

Can you not take your younger daughter in with you? then sis can either put her two in the sofa bed or leave nephew on his own in your daughters bed - or stick no2 daughter in day bed - she'll be lighter so it will be comfy for her

I really want my bed back, I could barely walk this morning after a night on DD1's day bed. I did tell dsis and she kinda muttered that nephew didnt want to sleep with DD2. She has taken niece to bed now, I think I am going to take the 2 middle ones up so the job is already done when she comes down!

No just say it's back to normal folks. Sorry. Visitors especially family should fit in with you guys, not the other way round. I don't give up my bed for no one. I don't expect anyone to give up theirs for me.

I think you're entitled to your own bed!

No tell her.

I am single parent with 2 DD's (12 and 6).
My sister and her children are visiting (age 4 and 2). Last night we had a drama (vomiting 4yr old) and all got to bed late and unsettled.
My niece (age 2) ended up in the double sofa bed in the spare room alone, and my nephew age 4, ended up with my sister in my double bed. Normally nephew would top and tail with my DD2 (age 6).
By the time I went to go to bed, all the beds were taken! I ended up sleeping with my DD1 (age 12), she has a pull out day bed, which as I discovered is incredibly uncomfortable (she says it is fine).
Tonight my dsis seems to think that those were excellent sleeping conditions (I bet as she slept in my very comfortable very expensive mattress).
AIBU to not want to give my bed up again?? There is no reason that tonight we cannot sleep as we usually do when they visit, ie sis and niece in spare room, nephew with Dd2, and me and DD1 in our own beds. Or am I just being a mardy old cow?
