Looking for a pushchair? Find out which stroller is our Mumsnet Best of 2017!
DS2 and DD are tired after a day at nursery, so I've settled them on the sofa with their duvets and pillows while they watch the bed time hour, and I'm on mumsnet (hoping they fall asleep)So how bad am I?
Sounds like my house good to me.
Sounds pretty normal to me!
Lynette, for goodness sake pull yourself together, how do you thing any of us manage to MN at this time of night?Now chill.They are happy, you are happy. Howis that bad parenting?
They haven't had a bath, or brushed their teeth. They are fully clothed. I really should make some effort, shouldn't I?
The good thing is, when the clocks change soon, you tell them that it is infact now bedtime as its dark outside
errrrrrrrri've been doing that for years!!(Well, a few -dd is 5!)
oh ps dd's bedtime is 7pm so bath, teeth etc happens after the bedtime hour!
Skip the bath then, they won't die.Just quick teeth brush and jammies on right before bed.
oh yes, we also skip the bath sometimes too!
DD now has PJ's on and clean teeth. (just to reasure you all I've not lost it completely)
I always like to remind myself of the fact that Claire Rayner admitted to putting her children to bed at 4pm one dark winter's afternoon, because she was absolutely knackered.The winter drawing in does have some benefits for those with children who can not tell the time....
Somw days, if that what it takes to cope, then its no harm at all.
