    My 11 year old son (soon to be 12) has got 2 friends over for a 'sleep over'. So far there is a lot of giggling and I'm not sure there's going to be much sleeping.

    Does anyone want to adopt them from a night, I have enough trouble sleeping without this lot as well?!

    Thanks! :wacko:

    They have been really quiet all evening but now it's got to the stage of making their beds up they've got a bit manic.

    Your son's sleepover sounds like a tough night!

    Lets hope we all get some sleep :sleep:

    You can keep them up playing cards :flower: I'll sleep and try and entertain them tomorrow when they're all grumpy from lack of sleep!

    They've just told me they had their first sex ed lesson today and have been learning about "cleaning their bits" (their words), this is adding to the hyper giggling!

    Ok it's a deal! I'll sleep during the day then - I seem to have no problem at all falling asleep any time, any place in daylight - on the train, in a meeting, at the hairdressers - it's just when I go to bed at night it All Starts. Sigh.

    I don't know but it's driving me crazy! I am sooo tired! Fell (very embarrassingly) asleep in the hairdressers this afternoon while waiting for my son to have his haircut, but I haven't slept properly a single night for about 4 weeks now... :shrug:

    Cat naps everywhere :blush:

    Well, they actually slept and I got some sleep too. OH got up with the baby (I should stop calling him the baby!) this morning so I could sleep some more, but after a while the sounds of wrestling from downstairs woke me up.

    Only a few more hours until we get our peaceful house back!

    You must be really looking forward to that! I actually slept too - seven whole hours with only one break to get up to pee - still not quite enough for me but sooo much better than past few weeks. :)

    That's brilliant! I'm the same though, 7 hours isn't nearly enough, I like 12!

    I've not reached the stage where I have to get up to pee, I'm thinking of buying a commode though as our toilet is downstairs and our stairs are really steep!

    Aw! I've been getting up to pee EVERY night since about 7 weeks or so... Yeah 12 hours does feel like about the right amount at the moment I must admit :D We luckily have an ensuite but our bedroom is very small and currently has the pram and moses basket filling the whole of the about 18 inches of space between the end of the bed and the wall, so I have to clamber over OH every time I need to get up in the night. Lots of fun for both of us (can y'hear the sarcasm there). Maybe we should both just get chamber pots...
