As she hadn't had a nap Princess Lollipop was absolutely tired out and she was in bed by about 6.30pm!! A huge improvement already!! However, she woke up at 8pm (she obviously thought she'd had a nap and it was wakey up time!!) and refused to go to sleep for the next two and a half hours!! However, I'm just as stubborn as she is and refused to take her downstairs and every protest she came up with I just replied "Its night night time." By 10.30pm I was so cross legged and desperate for the loo I had to ask her to stay in her cot and make a run for it! I met Mrs LMS in the hallway and moaned to her about the last few hours, and about how hungry and thirsty I was and then disappeared back into our room to try and persuade Princess Lollipop to get to sleep.
Mrs LMS must have gone downstairs and reported my hysterical whinging to Mr Messy as he appeared within minutes, and took over the Princess wrangling to give me chance to get myself some supper and a drink. Thank you so much both of you :-)
When I went in the kitchen I was very disappointed to see that Drama Teen still hadn't finished the washing up I had asked her to do this morning. However, as I was sat in the lounge enjoying my snack and drink I heard her come down from her room and get on with it :-) With no reminders or nagging :-) I'm proud of you Drama Teen, thank you so much :-)
