A Cautionary Tale About Co-sleeping

After a hideous night with the children a few nights ago while Sandy was away, I share with you my cautionary tale about co-sleeping which should be sung (approximately) to the tune of "there were ten in the bed".  But before I do, here is a photo that was taken at bath-time just before the night in question


There were three in their beds and the biggest one said,

"all sleep there, all sleep there."

So they all slept a while but the little one said,

"I want milk, I want milk"

So Mummy rolled over and gave some milk but the little one said,

"I'll stay here, I'll stay here"

There were two in the bed but the bigger one said,

"I want in, I want in"

So Mummy let the bigger one in, but she wriggled and she jiggled so the little one said,

"I want milk, I want milk"

So mummy rolled over and gave some milk and the bigger one said,

"HELLO" at the top of her voice

So the little one said,

"Wah, wah, wah, wah, wah, wah"

So the bigger one said,

"Not here, not here"

So the mummy one took her back to her bed so there were two in the bed and the little one said,

"I want milk, I want milk"

There were two in the bed when the bigger one said,

"I want back, I want back"

So the Mummy one got her and tucked her in and begged her to close her eyes for there were three in the bed when the little one said,

"I want milk, I want milk"


So we all rolled over and some milk was drunk.

There were three in the bed when we fell asleep just in time for the alarm to say

"Beep beep beep, beep beep beep"


There was no-one in the bed when the Mummy said,

"Give me coffee, give me coffee"
