it's 23:30h and I am paying for letting DD2 (aged 7 ?ASD) watch Merlin, against my better judgement. And it was extra scarey tonight! DD2 wanted to watch it because she was playing with her older sister who loves it, and they were sat together when it came on. I KNEW I shouldn't have!

About 21:30 She cried out from upstairs very afraid, and we sang some silly songs and read a chapter from The Faraway Tree. Unsuccessful, as:

22:15 she was back downstairs telling me that her room needs to be re-painted '...because monsters come into pink rooms but not blue rooms' (er yeah right....). Still not sorted.

Then later DD2 demanded to go and sleep with DD1 as she is afraid of the lampshade in our bedroom (true actual and well established fact) and can't sleep in our room.

So about 22:30 they went in together.

Then all hell is breaking loose and I tell them they can watch 'Gangnam Style' then settle down and sleep.

Then 20mins later they are still chatting and get some stern words from me.

Now at 23:37 they are both in tears about the fact that their 'feet keep touching each other'.

So now we are at deadlock. My next strategy is to get them to swap bedrooms! I am so not ready to go to bed yet (woke up at 9am this morning!) So I think there is some way to go yet.....

I have well and truly broken it.

Oh dear. Tomorrow is gonna be ugly. Dear Lord.

everything is hurting his ears to nite or today lol he can hear the freezer kicking on downstairs, then it was the cat snoring in the next room!

Now it was music from god knows where. It's a real sensory time of it and now I am going to try and work out how to get upstairs and not wake him. Contemplating just dossing on the sofa x

<<<<<<< I am going to try and work out how to get upstairs and not wake him>>>>>>>>>>>

coff33pot - I've actually slept on the sofa a couple nights when DS2 hasn't been sleeping well, but finally dropped off and I didn't want to wake him up (we have very creaky stairs just outside his room)

Are you allowed to do 'my night was worse than your night?' grin
I had a 10 yr old's sleepover party on Saturday. 1 with dx, 1 dx and on way to statement, 2 in process of dx.
I have considerably more grey hairs than Friday, am incredibly glad that birthdays only happen once a year and I obviously made the right decision in not letting them watch Merlin (1 of them said he was scared so I vetoed it for all) grin

Auntevil grin you deserve a BluePeter badge for that one!

I am lucky tonight ds was asleep by 11pm and that means I get to stretch out in my bed if the dog doesn't pinch my half first lol he fell off the sofa twice last night trying to share it with me!
