Last night my 2 1/2 year old insisted on sleeping with her 5 year old brother. She got as far as trying to pull her bed out of her room and into his room…well….she managed to move it about half a meter. Then she got mad at me for not wanting to move furniture around at 8 o’clock at night.
How many times did I re-arrange Ben’s room in the past half year to accommodate her toddler bed? How many times did I move his lego away, move the dresser here, his shelf there, toys someplace else, to accommodate her bed? Countless times, that’s how many.
She’d be all happy and all excited to “sleep with Ben”. Until bedtime. At which point we would have to move it all back again.
So last night we promised to move her bed back to Ben’s room tomorrow. Tomorrow is today.
Wanna bet this toddler has new and revised opinions about this today?
Wanna bet this toddler has new and revised opinions about this AFTER I move the room around?
Maybe I’ll just hope for the best that she forgot her request so that I won’t be called a liar in her little overactive brain when I conveniently forget to move the furniture around.
I mean, I got LISTS of things to do today. Moving the kids’ room around wasn’t on the list.
