” Good Night Mummy” she said happily as she made her way  over to the boys room where they had laid out an extra bed for their little sister.

I thought that I had it good and she  was now ready to sleep in a separate room. I had been waiting for this day anxiously.

Operation Sleepover = FAILED.


 How has it been for you getting your kid/

kids to sleep independently?
