Restraining Order!

Sleeping and Awake Babushka Doll by snollygosters

I think I may start another business. I want to manufacture "fun" ways to keep children in their beds for an entire night.

Lately, my four year old has taken to getting up in the wee hours of the morning and either crawling into the master bed and flailing her limbs every which way, or she sleeps downstairs on the couch. I'm not sure why this all started, and she can't explain it, but it must be stopped! Aside from losing sleep when she's in my bed, it worries me when she's not sleeping in her own. I have to wonder, "what is she getting into?" Maybe she's raiding the refrigerator because she wouldn't eat her dinner, yet again. I don't know, but there has to be a way to keep her in her own bed.

Perhaps making velour covered bungee cords that hook onto either side of the bed across the child? Or maybe turn the bunk bed into a fort. Yeah, Fort Knox. But it will be the other way around and it can't be broken out of. Or perhaps a potent dose of Dramamine and a Kenny G cd. That last one does seem kind of cruel.

In any event, I could take a cue from Bob Ross and call them "Happy Little Restraints" for peace of mind and a good night's sleep. ;oP
