Oh god I'm so sorry last night was rough again. I remember getting to the point where I was actually grateful for the nights to be over - as crazy as that sounds. But during the day at least I was able to distract my self by take DS2 for a walk, meet my mum for coffee and cake!
My DH wouldn't chuck a sickie either. But remember it's not a sickie to take carers leave - to look after you and your children.
Just take it day by day and do what you have to do and are comfortable with to get through.
Thank you @binnielici.
I'd just like to thank all you girls for all your support, you don't realise how important it's been to me I'm very isolated and don't have much support and just having a place to vent helps me feel less alone and that I can keep on going xxx
Some of my fondest memories is walking dd1 in the stroller watching the sun rise. We now live on the top of a steep hill- awesome views but almost impossible to take a stroll with two kidlets. (Poor dog is getting huge and doesn't even get a look in now!)
Feeling for you @Little Miss Sunshine sleep deprivation is the pits and I just have one 7 month old DD to deal with and no toddler wrangling (and my experience to date with DD means we are 99.99% sure she'll be an only child).
I got a call at 5pm yesterday advising I was being admitted to sleep school today after a month long wait. I'm hoping this helps sort us out. You are so not alone with the middle of the night demon and yes it feels so isolating and lonely doesn't it. My DH only took today off to come to admission when I told him they'd give him a medical certificate 😖
@gingermillie when I was going through it with dd1 I thought I'd never do it again either.... Then they do improve and you forget how awful it is and how it seems to go on forever lol!
Good luck with sleep school xxx

So disappointed for dd1. Took her to orientation at daycare and they had to give up her place to priority care. They wanted to tell me in person, I'm proud of myself of holding back the tears.
We are top of the waiting list, usually a spot comes up once a month or so.
I understand that I'm fortunate enough to not NEED the place and that others need it more. It's just I'd talked it up so much to dd1 and she had a brand new bag etc.....
My heart is hurting for your DD too it's a big thing and she was obviously excited so it's really deflating. Hopefully you can do something nice today maybe go to a cafe for a coffee and regroup. Big hugs to you both xx
