We were having dinner at Muppet’s place the other night when she asked us if we would have a sleep-over at her place.

Ninny: “But we don’t have our PJ’s, Muppet”

Muppet: “That’s okay, you can borrow some of Mummy’s”

I’ll subjugate myself for this kid big time but you have to draw a line somewhere.  Then again, I’ve worn a princess dress so what’s a frilly nightie between friends.

Then a few weeks ago, we were discussing the arrival of our new camper and we suggested Muppet and her mum come along for a trip with us.  The van has two large beds at either end with another bed that can be made up from folding the table and seats down.

Muppet: “I’d like to sleep in Ninny’s bed”

Me: “But where would I sleep?”

Muppet: “You can sleep with Mummy”

This little girl has all the answers, but judging by mum’s expression, not always the correct ones.  smile_embaressed

    Just sleep in the back of the car with the dogs 🙂 Safer all round!

    Thomas – A very good suggestion!

    Sure is one big happy family, but i would definitely take Thomas advice could be the best dog house you’ve ever been in. Raising one very liberal kid there.

    June – Yep, I’m badly outnumbered.

    I do believe I’ve come up against that problem in the past, the golden rule is: When in doubt put all the girls together in the most comfortable sleeping quarters and the guys together in the most uncomfortable sleeping quarters, and if there are animals to contend with the nonfarters sleep with the girls and the farters sleep with the boys, problem solved!

    AZ – You won’t be coming camping with us!

    Little Miss Innocent came into the room the other day singing, as she always is, in her own “Muppet speak”, singing something along the lines of “… oh ficker focker f***er…” MD and I nearly wet ourselves laughing.

    MM – Good, she remembered that one. A new one for tonight………….

    I’m not the fig plucker but the fig pluckers son
    I’ll pluck figs until the fig plucker comes.

    PS Only kidding 😀
