Back to School, Back to Bed

My kids went back to school this week, my daughter started 2nd grade and my son started Pre-K. All summer the kids have stayed up late, slept in and played non-stop together every day. They have also slept in my daughter’s room, with my son on the trundle under my daughter’s bed. I did not complain because I thought it was cute they liked to have a sleepover every night and it kept them from trying to sleep in my bed.

Remember how hard it was to get first day of school pictures last year? This year my daughter actually smiled for her first day of school picture! My son fake smiled but that is still better than refusing to take a picture.

For the past three months, my son has refused to sleep in his room. When I asked him why, he told me it was because of bugs. Apparently he saw an ant on his toy box one day and a few weeks later, a mosquito was in the house and he claimed it flew into his room. For a few weeks he even held his breath whenever he walked in his room because he of the bugs. Not sure why he thought holding his breath would protect him, and I have learned not to try to argue with a 5-year-old. When I told him he needed to start sleeping in his room once school started, he said I needed to get rid of the bugs first.

No matter how many times I told him the bugs were gone, he still refused to sleep in his room because he was afraid that bugs were hiding in there. Finally, I grabbed the Hot Shot® Insecticides spray, went to his room and sprayed it around the window and told him it would keep the bugs from getting inside.  He said he wanted to wait a few days to make sure, so I agreed.

Tonight will be the true test, now that we have survived the first day of school (and first day of school pictures), he has to survive sleeping in his own room alone for the first time in three months. The protests have already started but it has nothing to do with bugs. I think my sweet little boy is going to miss sleeping in the same room as his big sister.
