walking zombie

Whenever Ben is gone, the kids see his side of the bed, as fair game. I tell them that as much as I love them, I don't want to sleep with them. We all have our own beds and I want to keep it that way.

However, Ivan has decided that he doesn't want to listen to this. Every night I put him to bed and he falls promptly to sleep. Then nice and early in the morning (around 2 or 3) he comes and sneaks in to my room. Honestly he is seriously quiet about it. Probably sleep walking!! Then he gets in and rolls around, steals blankets, kicks me in the back etc. etc. It has made for some serious lack of sleep!

I was thinking about locking my door, but I really don't want him sitting outside my door screaming or something. I don't want to be awoken that early and I certainly don't want the other kids too also.

I have to get him to stop this before Ben comes home! Any suggestions?

That's tough because night time sleep is so important and you really don't want the rest of the house waking up! What does he do if you take him right back to his room when he comes in? It seems like I have seen a supernanny show where the parents had to do that like a million times in one night, but then the kid learned to stay in his bed. Good luck and steer clear of those toddler elbows and knees - ouch!
