Caringbah mum, Sally Hughes, reportedly thought she’d found a solution to the sleepless nights caused by a late-night guest: her 3-year-old daughter, Emma.
After more than two years of sleeping in her own bedroom, the intrusive toddler has begun regularly sliding in beside her mother in the wee hours of the morning, into the queen size bed that Sally has long-shared with her husband Lucas.
“My sleep’s been as broken as a dropped phone.”
“I don’t know why or exactly when it began but Emma spends more time on our bed than the throw cushions” her mother Sally told The MOTS Mail.
“It wouldn’t be such a problem if she weren’t apparently an aspiring breakdancer in her dreams, who seems to wedge her head into my back and pivot around with her feet.”
More room definitely seemed like the answer and Sally had high hopes that purchasing a king size mattress from her local Snooze store would solve her sleep and back problems.
But snooze, she would not.
“I’m not sure what kind of magic, trickery or false advertising is at play, but the mattress seems to convert to a matchbox in the middle of the night.” Sally said.
“I called Snooze for a refund, but was informed that they would not accept my return as the bed sold to me was allegedly a standard King size.”
Sally has already tried in vain to bribe her daughter to stay in her own bed. Sleep-deprived, out of ideas and with brain fog as thick as hair held together by days of dry shampoo, she turned to her husband Lucas to ask what else they could try, to which he replied:
“What do you mean? I sleep fine.”
Unsubstantiated reports have claimed that Lucas’ new home, in the doghouse, has meant there is now ample space in the king size bed for just Sally and Emma to sleep soundly.
