DH works nights occasionally, and I LOVE having the bed to myself, but, dd1 (6 yrs) always wants to sleep with me, I don't usually mind but she is a NIGHTMARE, she more often than not falls out of my bed and the spends the whole night putting her leg over me which wakes me up.
How do I wake her up without dissapointing and upsetting her (she is very touchy about everything at the minute).
She is old enough IMO to be told that she has her own bed and you would like her to stay in it. perhaps you could soften the blow by sharing your bed with her for 10 or 15 minutes in the morning. I often have a massive cuddle with my four children first thing in the morning. It is a nice way to start the day (if the day must be started!)
