What is it about the Eastenders theme tune that sends the kids nuts? Just sit down after putting the kids to bed, the Eastenders theme tune starts and 3…2…1
MUUUUUUUM!She’s punching me in the butt!
MUUUUUUUM he touched my pillow with his little toe!
Everytime without fail! It’s meant to be on for half an hour, oh no, not in this house. With all the pausing it’s on at least an hour and a half!
I’m sure they know instinctively that it’s meant to be chill out time and they’ll be missing out on something, not that I would ever hide chocolate to eat later when the little gems are asleep of course! Just 1 program to watch in peace that’s all I ask! Dad gets left alone to watch all his crappy storage wars type nonsense but me? Not a cat in hell’s chance!
Here are some more of the crap excuses I’ve heard:
It’s too dark!
Inevitably the “BIG” light then goes on and then might as well try sleeping with their eyeballs on the sun!
It’s too light!
Hmph well I did try to tell you, 10 mins of deciding the best place on the dimmer switch ensues!
I make you a drink and you take the teeniest sip that wouldn’t satisfy an ant!
Should have eaten more than a bite of waffle and 3 peas then!
How is that even possible?Every bloody light in the house is on!
I need my baba!
You already have 15 on your bed and there’s no room for you!
There’s a bug!
It’s a piece of fluff off the teddy bear you tried to behead!
I’m too hot!
That’ll be because you’re wearing fleece pyjamas – the one’s you demanded- and it’s bloody boiling!
What’s the best excuse you’ve ever heard for stalling bedtime?
