This is the sight that greeted me when I came to put Mia to bed last night.
It’s a mini replica of her bedroom (notice the picture frame and the nightlight from her bedside table) BUT it’s out on the landing. Right at the top of the stairs.
Clearly the fact that mummy spent HOURS online searching for the perfect bed so she could move from her cotbed to grown up status in style, escapes her.
And don’t be surprised at the inclusion of a pink Dora backpack (stuffed to brimming with, well, stuff), countless cuddly toys and a notebook in her bedtime display – she normally squirrels those away under her duvet at night “in case I wake up in the night and get bored”.
There’s barely enough room for her in that bed these days!
(By the way, I showed this photo to a friend whose only response was: “crikey, your skirting boards are clean aren’t they?”
Yes but look at the mad child won’t you!)
