Well a fortnight away normally creates much laundry, however this was increased by Jen’s bed wetting. He is always worse when away from home, and he had 6 bed time accidents this holiday. I am so glad we took his brolly sheet, and our camping rotary washing line! We could rinse the smells away and hung to drip dry, then it was off to asda to buy some Surf as we’d forgotten that… Washing line, and clothes, but no soap. Doh!

As I’ve mentioned Jen is bed wetting at the moment. He’s four and a half, nearly five now so hopefully this stage will be over soon. I was using plastic sheets until recently. Jen had a meltdown about the crinkly crunchy noise it makes. He refused to go to his bed, sleeping on the floor. When he wet himself sleeping on my sheepskin rug on my bedroom floor that was the final straw! Worse than a wet dog smell. The lovely B-Sensible folks* have sent me a single fitted sheet to review. These sheets are meant to be comfortable, breathable yet still waterproof, and silent in use. We will see!If you did want to buy one of these sheets after reading my blog you can buy them at Luxury bedding products. To win one you will see the competition at the end of this post.

It didn’t start perfect, Jen wet his bed in the night, thankfully his bed has special sheets on and it worked well (a review on that to follow soon). So in the night he came into my bed when I was asleep, the smell of wee woke me, at which point was too late as he’d been lying in my bed for long enough to let his soaked pjs get my bed stinky and wet. Lovely… First task of mothers day, lots of washing including both quilts.Wish he’d stayed in his bed. When I woke this morning I was greeted by an almost naked Jen waving a box of chocolates at me, suggesting I forget breakfast and eat these. I obliged of course. Would be rude not to! Shortly after this partner appears with a mug of coffee and D comes in with this… I love trees. I’ve run out […]
Dear little Jen is refusing to sleep in his bed, so we’ve been refusing to hug, chat or anything after a few efforts to get him to his bed. Here he is last night… Asleep on my stairs. And earlier in the week he made a blanket nest instead of getting in bed… And here he is in his bedroom doorway! Anyone know why he is doing this? It’s not cute like the photos. It’s actually rather annoying he can sleep anywhere unless its at bed time and in his bed. :-/ We tried reward charts for behaving at bed time, we tried taking away favourite toys or time limits on them for being naughty, we’ve tried ignoring it but he goes on hours. And when he eventually gets to bed we are all tired and grumpy, then to make it more fun there is bed wetting thrown in. Struggling […]
