You know you are going to have an interesting day when…

You have to call 999 before 9am! Yesterday, I had a calm, productive day planned. The children were going to their lovely child minder’s for a few hours, I was going into where I work, to do the mountain of admin that lurks in my cupboard, make some calls that need to be done without […]

So, sleep? We are actually getting some!

Yes, you read it right. I posted on our Facebook page, last week, that we had had a breakthrough, and were cautiously optimistic that more sleep was coming our way, and it seems to be a regular thing now. Small Boy, of his own accord, like he seems to do with everything else, decided that […]

Magic Moments – 4 years ago, this month…

LSH and I went out on a lunch date, alone. We had organised for Big Girl to be be collected from her nursery, by her lovely child-minder, for a few hours, so we could have some much-needed time together, on a week day, for a treat. We went to a local restaurant, and I was craving steak, […]

The blog post where I talk about sleep, AGAIN!

Unrelated but annoyed looking cat. Sums up how we feel about sleep… Oh look, she’s blogging about sleep, or lack of it, again, I hear you mutter. Yes, I am going to talk about sleep, and probably sound a bit whiney, but this is more of an update post, than anything else. We recently discovered that […]

Happy Birthday Small Boy!

This time three years ago, labour was starting. You were on your way. 5 days late, and your birth had some highs and lows, with the fear of meconium aspiration, and that you were in distress. You entered the world as you meant to go on, letting your presence be known, with a little drama […]

So, do we have an answer….?

Or at least we hope, we have worked out why Small Boy may not be sleeping so well. I am kicking myself, and feel very guilty, that I should have worked it out sooner, but now we know, and hopefully we can work our way to a solution. At Christmas time, Small Boy got flu, […]
