The bane of every parents night…. night terror’s! It starts off when they are small but then you get used to being awake at night with feeds and nappy changes etc but ‘Mum there is a massive spider on the ceiling over my bed and you have to come and kill it right now’ waking you from a very deep sleep is really not my favorite thing to hear at 1.45 am from my 16 year old terror! Having jumped feet from being woken so abruptly my first thought is ‘deal with it!’ my second thought is ‘damn i’m awake.’ Now i know when i have dragged my body into the terror’s bedroom that this massive spider is going to be, well, not so big at all, i also know that even though i have my glasses on the chances of me seeing this spider and dealing with it are slim as my eyes just are not awake enough to actually see straight yet. Navigating the stairs to the terror’s bedroom and squinting in the light i can see, well almost, that i am right, it’s not the camel spider i’m led to believe. I gave it a wake, loose it, smack a few poster’s in an attempt to be seen to be getting rid of it, moan at terror about being woken at stupid o’clock and retreat back to my bed. But now i’m awake! Thanks Kid. I also discover that i am not the only one awake as it looks like both terror’s haven’t been to sleep at all yet….. Grrrrrrrrr teenager’s! You may find the following images slightly ugh! The top image is what i thought i was dealing with, the bottom one sort of what i found.
