    I know it's probably the last thing you feel like doing but tonight when your DH gets home could you make a double or triple recipe and then you know you have leftovers on hand for the next few days? I always found everything so much harder when I didn't know when I'd be eating my dinner.

    Or, toast is good too :-)

    Hang in there.

    And now ds is SCREAMING cause he finally went to sleep & someone's stupid dog woke him up. He WIll NOT go back to sleep so im either going to have to rock or feed to sleep, stuffing up our entire routine. They'll be getting a note in their mailbox in the morning......

    Your not going to break the baby doing it this once. He'll be ok. Just start again tomorrow. Babies adapt.

    I've been having difficult late afternoon/evenings recently so have switched to cooking during the day, whenever DS is down for a nap, and reheating for dinner, so that we can eat at a reasonable time, with one of us holding him usually! I even do some prep first thing in the morning, whenever I get a chance really!!

    Hope next nap time is easier for you tomorrow.

    It just didn't work tonight. Pick yourself up again tomorrow and try again.

    When DS used to scream before all his sleeps I would kind of go into this zone and repeat 'I am going to win this battle' in my head, under my breath, our loud, singing it, anything. The difference in my head space the times I didn't do it was really obvious and I think DS picked up on it too.

    I know it's hard when you're disappointed and frazzled and tired but I think sometimes 'fake it til you make it' really does help mentally.

    Its just frustrating cause ds has been doing so well. Barely any crying these days, settling himself for most sleeps without even needing my help. No rocking needed anymore, only patting needed occasionally. And now we've had hysterical screaming tonight cause someone cant take responsibility for their animal. The same dog woke ds up on the weekend as well but at least dh was here to help then.

    It doesn't bark often enough to meet the Council requirements to do something but it barks enough to wake ds up. And i know the owners are home, they just dont care. Its just really frustrating.

    Every baby has days where sleep turns to crap, that's just life.
    You are doing so well with him, he is just having a bad night.
    Don't worry about the dog, there is always going to be something to wake him.
    Get him to sleep any way you can and start fresh tomorrow

    I have been craving Maccas for a week. My catch up there today got canceled because I was waiting for a plumber... who had a Maccas frappe with him... Now my housemate has come home with a Maccas bag. I have steak for dinner :-( I hate steak.

    Tonight DF offers me some 'Snack' chocolate. I say "no thanks". He asks why (because let's face it I never refuse chocolate) and I finally come clean. After nearly 3 years of him buying Snack chocolate and me buying it for him, I come clean.
    "I really don't like it" I say.
    He bursts out laughing.
    "Then why do we keep buying it?" He says.

    I tell him it was for him. He tells me he buys it because he thinks I love it.

    Neither of us actually like it!
