"I don't like my bed!"

A conversation overheard by the entire household at 2am last night................

Grumpy toddler (standing at the top of the stairs, wailing and sobbing): I don't like my bed!

Sleepy Mama: Why don't you like your bed?

Grumpy toddler (crying even louder): I don't like my bed because I bumped my nose on the door when I came out!

Now wide awake Mama: That's not a reason to not like your bed, that means you're supposed to stay in your bed when it's dark so you don't bump into things! Now you're up, let's go potty.

Toddler: I don't like my bed!

Mama: Why?

Toddler: I don't like my bed because I don't like my bed!

Mama: That's not a good reason.

Back from the bathroom.......

Toddler: I don't want to sleep in my bed. I want to sleep in YOUR bed!

Mama: You can't sleep in my bed because then nobody gets any sleep.

Toddler: I don't like my bed!

Here we go again..........

Mama: Why don't you like your bed?

Toddler: Because there are too many bears in it!

Mama: OK, then let's take some bears out.

Toddler: No, I don't like my bed because it's too comfy!

You've gotta be kidding me now!

Mama: Well, we'll put some rocks in your bed tomorrow to make it less comfy.

Toddler: No! Rocks will hurt me! I don't like my bed!

So we sit for a while in the chair, and rock, back and forth, back and forth..........

In a little while, the toddler settles down, and goes to back to bed without any more fuss. And sleeps until 6:45am. On the other hand, Mama falls back asleep, only to be awoken an hour later to the sounds of a snoring husband. Ugh!

And with those debating skills my boy outta be a politician!

I'm glad you have a sense of humor about middle of the night wake-ups! You've got to give him credit for trying... :-)
