Did someone say wine?
The no sleep thing combined with a filthy chesty virus has taken its toll the past 2 weeks. Can not get better! Evenings are my enemy just from fear of what lies ahead 😱
I caved on the dummy ladies 😞. I probably didn't have to, he wasn't making a big deal but at nap time he asked me for it when I first lied him down and I just tried to ignore it and pretend I didn't hear/understand. Then I watched him on the monitor just quietly walk around his cot for 30 mins and felt awful. I went in to lie him back down and he kept standing back up so I just gave him his dummy and he fell asleep within a couple of mins, obviously harder for him to wind down for nap time. I wasn't up for him missing a whole nap and essentially messing up bedtime because I was trying to push him not to have his dummy when I don't really care or actually see it as a problem. So my bubble from this morning has popped. One thing I feel good about is that I never made a big deal about taking it away (talking to him about, etc) so hopefully when we decide to properly try this little experiment won't be remembered by him.
Don't feel bad HGL. You tried and it didn't work out yet, no biggie
I am just here silently seething at DH. This happens every weekend where we start the morning barely talking as DH sleeps in till ridiculous hour and I get angrier and angrier- it's currently 9am, he is still not up, he went to bed earlier than me and had non interrupted sleep yet here I am up before 6 dealing with the kids yet again.....
I hate this cycle of getting angry every weekend but my god he is just so awful in the mornings if I try and wake him.... (Or he hides in bed playing on his phone which makes me even angrier)
Oh LMS I'd be kicking his butt out of that bed!!! You deserve a break too. At least one morning a week!
I think DS is coming out of a growth spurt. For the past week he would want to be attached to me constantly during the night, but last night he wasn't overly interested. He still woke up probably 5 times, but just needed a cuddle and his dummy. He is getting much better at his day sleeps in his cot, so fingers crossed we might see some improvements soon.
I'd kick my DH's *** if he acted like that. I'm off this morning to have breakfast with my girlfriends at the markets while DH watches dd. He loves their time alone together each Saturday morning. Can you organize in advance to go out so he knows he has to step up? Maybe a gentle push 😊
To be fair to my DH he can't really help ATM as his eyesight has deteriated with age. He has Hyperacuity and loosing his vision it is having a really bad effect on him. He is presenting with dementia like symptoms and nothing in the world is making sence to him anymore. DH does what he can but I really have to deal with it (and just about everything else on my own).
