That's it really. DD suddenly over last few nights been much more difficult going to bed. Last night woke up in early hours wanted to be in our bed - threw almighty strop. My default - not to give in to stropping, but that decision involved a LOT of lost sleep which I can't afford - and a lost battle when I fell asleep and she climbed in. I don't know what to do if she does it again. What would you do? My instinct is to try to find out why she's upset, but she can't articulate what it is - and is throwing lots of strops generally at the moment. Is it best to let her for a few nights - i.e. not have a battle I lose - and hope it settles down again (i.e. she goes to bed in her bed happy and then sleeps through). or am I going to regret that?

I love the idea of DH falling out of bed

LAst night involved me in her room - but asleep. I have to say if it's a choice between being uncomfortable in her room or her in our bed, I'm wavering...

Tonight luckily she is so exhausted she conked out early....

The chicken pox thing has got me thinking tho....
