A night out inside

There were three in the bed and the middle one said, "Roll over!"

The boys wanted to sleep in a tent. Actually, under a tent made of blankets inside their bedroom.
No particular reason, it just seemed like a fun idea at the time.
Last night they thought it was a little cold. James rolled over taking their only blanket with him. Peter ended up hopping back into his bed and Eric was left feeling rather chilly.
Tonight they are using more blankets.
It worked well for us too. We gave them an ultimatum. "If you muck around you will be thrown straight into bed and no more tents."
"Yes Dad." they dutifully replied, "We'll be good."
And they were!
