Day 52: Nighty Night

When I was really little, for as long as I can remember, my parents said this little rhyme to me as they tucked me in for the night:

Nighty night,
Sleep Tight,
Don’t Let The Bedbugs Bite.
Sweet Dreams,
Happy Dreams,
God Bless.

Starting with my daughter, and now with my son, I started saying that to them when they were getting tucked in for the night. Until, of course, very recently.  One of the things that’s pissed me off the most is that bedbugs have taken away the fond memories of that little rhyme, that I’ve known ever since I can remember.

I now understand that “sleeping tight” means having the sheets tucked in very tightly, in order to prevent the bedbugs from biting you. Obviously way back when the saying was first invented, bedbugs were a common occurrence.

Well I can’t bear to say it anymore. Since we started this battle, I changed the words.  Now when I tuck the kids in, I say this:
 
Nighty night,
Sleep Tight,
See You In The Morning Light.
Sweet Dreams,
Happy Dreams,
God Bless.

There’s really no point in me continuing this blog, since we’ve essentially won our battle, but I will be ever vigilant to make sure this doesn’t happen again. If you’ve found me because you’re currently suffering with bedbugs, Please know you’re not alone, and that you CAN beat the dreaded bedbug.

From what I’ve read online, our bedbug fight was a short one. It didn’t feel short, but I’m very grateful we didn’t have to have more sprayings or fork out more cash for the heat treatment.

If you have any questions, or are having a tough time, please get in touch. If you leave a comment I get notified, so I can get back to you.

Nighty Night,
Cate

    apparently in Victorian England, they were in 3/4 of the homes…..when I had them, I just moved my bed away from the wall and made sure that nothing was able to crawl up to my bed—-put margarine tubs underneath with double sided tape and I never saw any on my bed—-but then, it is a bit hard to be sure for neither my partner or i ever felt the bites….yet I have heard people say that bed bugs are smart enough to crawl up to the ceiling and drop down to the beds—-dont know if that is true though.

    I’ve heard that too about the dropping from the ceiling. Makes me shudder just to think about it.

    My father-in-law grew up on a farm, and he remembers mostly everybody having them. He remembers his mother pouring boiling water from the kettle down the walls – probably a precursor to thermal treatment!
