Your bedroom is an Oasis, or is it? Celebrate National Bed Month with Silentnight
Note: This is a sponsored post Ever since we had our little ones we made the decision that mummy and daddy’s bedroom should be an oasis of calm *ahem* However, somehow that never quite worked out…which is why the National Bed Month competition for a spring makeover from Silentnight appeals rather a lot… We know that many parents do the cosleeping thang, but that has never really been for us. The bed in our room is not for small people to sleep in, its for big people. Small people bounce on it, and cuddle in the mornings with us, but there is no sleeping going on for them. Both my two are rather loud sleepers anyway, so I am not convinced if we had gone down that route that there wouldn’t have been more wriggling and less sleeping anyway…. Does that make me a bad mummy, not letting them sleep in our bed? I don’t think so; we made sure their beds were fun enough that they wouldn’t want to anyway! Stuntboy sleeps above a tent..you can’t get more fun than that? However, the jumping thang has broken the bed – its now nailed together – they aren’t supposed to do it anymore, but unfortunately, old habits do die rather hard…. I suspect cosleeping is a bit less dangerous; and the relaxing nature of the room – well its never quite got there I am afraid…. We need it to be the oasis of calm that it was intended seven years ago. At the moment, its just a bit of a dumping ground for clothes, books, and anything else that I can’t think of where to put. My bedside table is a cluttered mess, and I keep banging my head on the shelf above the bed. Feng Shui it is not; Bang Headi it most definitely is *groan* So a makeover for my bedroom rather than me seems like a rather good idea! Marvellous – I never can be bothered to spend time making myself over. Beds are a much better choice; no lippy required either. Prizes in the Silentnight competition include:
