We are trying to prepare our house for sale and we're really struggling. My dh & I took last week off work and spent long hours preparing the house for sale. That meant dd was looked after by a friend and our dd who has never had separation anxiety now is super anxious when I'm not around. As a result she's stopped sleeping in her cot at night and most nights is awake for hours on end. So, we're trying to clean/tidy/declutter/etc with majorly interrupted sleep and a clingy toddler underfoot.
So, is this pretty normal? Do you survive the process? We're hoping to go on the market in 3 weeks, but it seems we won't make that deadline (we want to move, don't *have* to move). Part of me wants to get it over & done with and part of me says to relax and take our time ... but we've already been working hard towards this for 6 long months.
Any tips/hints on how to survive this process on limited sleep with 2 kids who want & need attention, but also like making mess (they are kids after all)?
