Yes you can have another wee.
No you can’t have another drink.
Oh really? There’s a lion and a tiger and a spider and a monster in your bed and they’re squashing you, well we’d best deal with them.
So how do you deal with an imaginary menagery of such diversity? Fortunately Miss isn’t scared of this motley assortment of bedfellows so what we do is tell them to get out of her bed and go on the bean bag, then we stroke them and tickle them behind their ears and that sends them straight off to sleep.
If you have less docile creatures living under toddler beds and lurking in wardrobes here are some other ideas to shoo them away and get little ones a restful night’s sleep.
- Capture them in a Nightmare Snatcher – great for older kids to write down worries and ease their monster woes.
- Squirt them with Monster Spray to send them back to Monster land
- Invest in a Monster Mansion to oust the impostors
Well there’s a new one, just as I was finishing this post Miss trundled downstairs and told me that there was a peacock in her bed and it was eating her, fortunately peacocks are easier to deal with than lions and tigers and spiders and monsters, you just have to clap to shoo them off.
