Hi all you yummy mummies.
I am in need of some help please and advice.
I have a 3 1/2 year old girl and a 1 1/2 boy and currently they are sharing a room until we sell and buy a new house.
It is becoming a nightmare at night time.
We put the boy down at 6 then at 7 we put the girl down. She wakes the boy up and they spend the next hour - half shouting, screaming, jumping, generally making as much noise as possible.
Not sure what to do. We have shouted at them, talked reasonably with them, been calm, etc.
We have tried putting our daughter in our bed until they are both asleep which seems to be the best option but she messes about with mine and husbands things in our room. All my craft things are in our room and she messes about with it.
We collect her when she is asleep only to find bits and bobs all in our bed.
Last night they both didnt sleep until 9. Which is when i went to bed.
We didnt have any child free quiet time.
Ugh, actually finding this all so stressful.
Any suggestions welcome please.
From a very worn out Mummy.
