  • hmmm thats a hard one, but I understand completely. I would (calmly) say something like "look you guys, this is where I sleep, and I wanna go to sleep so Im going to need you to go do something else please" and if that doesnt work I would resort to being a bitch, but hey thats just me =) I hope you get some sleep

  • Just be honest with them and politely ask them if they could keep it down a bit:) They probably don't even realize they are keeping you up.

  • Tell then what you just told us. They may not understand though :(

    I understand, really I do! Those braxton hicks are keeping me up right now!

  • Pregnant women have a dispensation to act cranky.

    You cannot act like a b-tch unless you have transformed into a canine.

    Your need for sleep trumps their need to play.

    End of story.

  • You should really talk to your dad... I am sure he will tell the kids to go to their bedrooms himself so you can get more rest.
