I have definitely come to the decision that I want to turn the spare room into another bedroom for the girls! It seems that my plan of treating them to a nicer room for their birthday this year, has backfired and is causing more issues than I expected.
One issue is the fact that they just don’t want to go to sleep at night! This changed the day their room was transformed and I have given them sufficient time to settle in, (5 months to be exact) so I know it’s not just the change that has upset their bedtime routine.
I have also waited till they started school full time, on the basis that a lot of people had suggested that school would tire them out and they would crash by 6pm and sleep through till the next morning. This has also passed my children by and they can sometimes still be awake at 9pm, with no intention of entering the world of dreamland.
