Don't worry, I do it regularly.

You will just find a routine that works, and that is easy enough then. Just need to have a sleeper though lol.

..welcome..never know wehter the ones im sending are too rude???

well we are buying a sofa type bed for mindee this weekend and as opposed to today where she fell asleep at 3pm and i left her for an hour..there will be no sleeping during the day a week tomorrow and lots of it on the night!!>> dd is actually off school for teacher training on the firday, so i may let them stay up a little later! may have to be struck!

i'd start with bed early as normal even if dd is off school
start as you mean to carry on

so children are very grumpy if not enough sllep and if you have her till 4.30pm ...........

hmmm.your right..well i may let them stay up half hour extra as was toying with idea of extending dd's bedtime, this way, i cans tart it then and when mindee comes back for overnight, shell think its a treat??
