Bedtime, bouncing and blue smarties...

So, it's sunday again, did i get my act together? Did i 'eck! I was so tired that i did something i haven't done since well, who knows when.I had a lie in. Till nearly midday! L got up with R and sat through cars and bratz with her and left me abed! How kind is my son? wonderful! My youngest little man was still abed with me- asleep! That's my boy!
We went to bed early, full of good intentions (on my part anyway), R was flat out on the chair so L said he'd carry her up for me, off to bed we went. Ahh, lovely and tucked up, some film on - that fab i can't even remember what it was -when up came L with the girl. He crawled over the bed to put her next to me, laid her down, B put his arm over her at which point she punched him in the eye. Whoops! That wasn't going to help my early night plans one little bit. As you can imagine the B siren went off, followed by R's 'cos he pushed her. She didn't want him to touch her, he wanted to cuddle up and so on and so on....
Twenty minutes later my eardrums were bleeding and my spine felt like it was fractured in 3 different places. I'd finally calmed everyone down (only mild threats of physical violence and groundings till past puberty required) when the lovely Jean phoned. I LOVE Jean, she's one of the most wonderful people i've ever met but i knew that i was going to be on the phone for quite some time. We can talk for europe, sadly i didn't have enough energy to talk to the bathroom and back even! That's not strictly true, but had it been anyone else i'd've asked them to call back tomorrow. For the most part the kids watched the film and i chatted to Jean.
Half an hour later i recieved a surprise visit from K. This in itself is unusual in the evening but by now it's after 10.30pm, it soon became apparent why, she'd had a drinky poo and wanted to discuss the N problem. Unfortunately she came armed with a huge tube of blue smarties! Then produced a chocolate gateau! So by 11.30 we were all sat on my bed eating gateau while using my bed as a tramopline- whee! Great fun!!! That was until they flopped down and R started pushing B with her feet. They were both laughing around and giggling when R must've had a burst of superhuman strength (she's considerably smaller than him) and pushed him off the end of the bed! Only playing it had to be said, BUT he managed to fall awkwardly and bashed his head onto a video box right on his temple. NOT good. It didn't actually bleed but it turned blue immediately and looked like it should bleed. the poor lad. R was beside herself, she hadn't meant to hurt him, it was in fun and she felt terrible that he was hurt but that didn't really help him much at this point. there wasn't a lot i could do other than hold him and comfort him, i was nearly in tears myself. We'd been having so much fun with the gateau and smarties and bouncing and then sadness.
I didn't let him go to sleep for quite some time (hence the mam and boy lie in) so it was after 2am before we went to sleep. Next week i'm not planning to go to bed before midnight, early nights seem to have a way of turning round and biting me on the bum!....

Oh what a night! How wonderful that you got to lie in. You'd certainly need it! I hope the little one is feeling better now.

Our tongues weren't as blue as the bruise on B's head!!!
